Statement from Rooney on Nunn's election to HOF

Statement by Steelers President Art Rooney II on Bill Nunn being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame:

I am thrilled that Bill Nunn has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a contributor. He was not only a special friend and advisor to me, my father, my uncle Art Rooney Jr., but also Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin and everyone he worked with during his 46 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His stories, advice and lessons that he taught all of us are still apparent in our everyday work. He was a true pioneer in helping traditional HBCU players get their chance in the National Football League, and he is so deserving of this extraordinary honor.

I look forward to celebrating his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with his family this summer in Canton. I could not be more excited for him to receive this recognition.
