Chuck Noll: Coach, Teacher and Friend

Chuck Noll: Coach, Teacher and Friend
BY JED HUGHES
VICE CHAIR, KORN FERRY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Chuck Noll built Pittsburgh's famed Steel Curtain defense and used it as the foundation for one of football's greatest dynasties. In the process, he became the only NFL coach in history to win four Super Bowls, a record unmatched by Hall of Fame coaches including Tom Landry, Don Shula, Bill Walsh and Vince Lombardi.

Despite unparalleled success, he never was named AP NFL "Coach of the Year." The fact that he didn't draw attention to himself likely played a factor. (He won the inaugural Maxwell Football Club NFL Coach of the Year in 1989, however. It came a decade after his fourth and final Super Bowl victory). Despite opportunities presented to him, he never sought the spotlight or pursued endorsement deals - even at a time when NFL coaches were paid far less money than they make today. He remained true to his Midwestern roots and values.
