Rooney on the passing of Radakovich

Statement from Steelers President Art Rooney II on the passing of Dan Radakovich

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Dan Radakovich. During his time in Pittsburgh under Chuck Noll, Dan began as a defensive line coach in 1971, but then after a couple of years at the University of Colorado, Dan returned to the Steelers in 1974. During his second stint on Chuck's staff, Coach Rad became affectionately known as "Bad Rad", as he also became known as the offensive line coach of one of the best offensive lines of all time. In the process, Coach Rad helped the Steelers win two Super Bowl Championships.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Radakovich family.
