Head Coach Chuck Noll

4-0 in the superbowl. Nuff said.

Chuck Noll - With more Super Bowl wins than any other coach in NFL history (4), Chuck Noll was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1993. He coached the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1969 until 1991 and compiled a career record of 209-156-1.

After playing guard and linebacker for the Cleveland Browns, Noll worked as an assistant coach for the Chargers and Colts. In 1968, when Noll was the defensive coordinator for the Colts, they set an NFL record for fewest points allowed in a season. Later, he was hired to lead the Steelers prior to the start of the 1969 season.

Noll’s Steel Curtain Defense was overwhelming, and he was particularly skilled at selecting players in the NFL draft. In 1974, Noll selected four future Hall of Famers with his first five picks (Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Jack Lambert and Mike Webster). No other team has ever drafted more than two Hall of Famers in a single draft.
