PITTSBURGH, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- A street in the North Shore area of Pittsburgh will be named for former Steelers coach Chuck Noll who took the team to four Super Bowl wins, officials said.

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the Steelers organization said Chuck Noll Way would run from North Shore Drive to General Robinson Street in the stadium complex, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.

Members of the Rooney family and former Steelers Mel Blount and Andy Russell are expected to attend a ceremony Friday to honor Noll, who has more Super Wins than any NFL coach in history and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993.

Noll, 79, retired as the Steelers coach in 1991 with a record of 209 wins and 156 losses.

Other streets in the North Shore stadium complex are named for former Pirates great Bill Mazeroski, late Steelers owner Art Rooney and former University of Pittsburgh running back Tony Dorsett, the Post-Gazette said.
