Steelers Owner Dan Rooney Dead At Age 84

2011 AFC Championship: New York Jets v Pittsburgh Steelers

Sad day for the city of Pittsburgh and the Steelers organization.

On Thursday, the team announced that owner Dan Rooney had passed away at the age of 84.

Dan’s father, Art, was responsible for creating the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise.  Dan also served as the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland from 2009 to 2012.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
