The sports world on Chuck Noll

Posted Jun 14, 2014

A roundup of tweets from the sports world on the passing of Hall of Fame Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Chuck Noll.

STATEMENT BY ARCHABBOT DOUGLAS R. NOWICKI, O.S.B. CHANCELLOR, SAINT VINCENT COLLEGE ON THE PASSING OF FORMER STEELERS COACH CHUCK NOLL:

Chuck Noll taught many young men not only how to play the demanding game of professional football, but by his example, he taught all of us how to play the demanding game of life.

He had an unconquerable peace and courage about him which was determined by his spiritual faith, not by the good or bad circumstances of the moment. Chuck Noll was a Hall-of-Fame coach, and more importantly, a Hall-of-Fame man.

It is nice for us at Saint Vincent to remember that Chuck Noll himself was taught and influenced by the Benedictines, graduating from Benedictine High School in Cleveland.

Many remember him as a strong, self-effacing presence during the many years of training camp at Saint Vincent. Perhaps one exception to his style of avoiding the limelight was when he conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in a great performance of Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” at an outdoor concert on campus on Aug. 9, 1989. Of course, I had the distinct impression that the Symphony players were not paying too much attention to the beat of his baton.

What set Chuck Noll apart was his remarkable ability as a teacher. His subject was football & his students became 4-time Super Bowl champs
