Noll transformed the Steelers from a long-standing joke into one of the NFL’s pre-eminent powers, becoming the only coach to win four Super Bowls. He was a demanding figure who did not make close friends with his players, yet was a successful and motivating leader.

The Steelers won the four Super Bowls over six seasons (1974, 1975, 1978 and 1979), an unprecedented run that made Pittsburgh one of the NFL’s marquee franchises.

Born in Cleveland, Noll attended Benedictine High School, where he played running back and tackle, before gaining a scholarship to play for the Dayton Flyers. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh’s biggest rival, in 1953. At 27, he retired as a player from the Browns.
