Dan Rooney dies at 84



The Steelers announced the death of team chairman Dan Rooney at the age of 84 on Thursday afternoon.

As the eldest son of franchise founder Art Rooney, Dan Rooney spent his entire life around the Steelers and steadily took on more of the responsibility for running the franchise throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. He was named team president in 1975 amid the teamís run of four Super Bowl titles in six years behind coach Chuck Noll, who Rooney had a heavy hand in hiring, and players brought into the franchise under his direction.

RIP
