2014: Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll, who led the Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowl titles in his tenure from 1969 to 1991, dies at age 82 in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. Those Super Bowl victories gives him more than any other head coach in NFL history. Noll, seen here in 1954, also played seven years for his hometown Cleveland Browns before becoming a coach.
