Chuck Noll, former head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers and four-time Super Bowl winner, died on Friday at the age of 82.

The former Steelers coach reportedly died of natural causes late Friday night in the Pittsburgh suburb of Sewickley.

Noll is most notably known as one of the driving forces behind the Pittsburgh Steelers dynasty of the 1970s.

After becoming Pittsburgh’s head coach in 1969 at the age of 37, Noll went on to win 193 regular season games over the next 23 seasons. Noll’s Steelers won four Super Bowl in six seasons – a feat that has not been duplicated.

As one of the architect’s of Pittsburgh’s ferocious Steel Curtain defense, Noll remains the only head coach in NFL history to win four Super Bowls.

Few head coaches did it better than Noll, who keyed one of the great runs in NFL history.
