Legendary Pittsburgh Steelers scout, Bill Nunn Jr., will live on at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA when the team commemorated a bench in his honor.

The great Chuck Noll was not the only relevant Pittsburgh Steelers figurehead that passed away this offseason. Legendary scout Bill Nunn Jr., the architect of so many tremendous drafts in the 1970's, also left this world.

As the Steelers announced that the team will be wearing a helmet decal in honor of Noll, there hadn't been anything released or plans announced for how the organization will commemorate Nunn's life and career as a Steelers 'Super Scout'.

The team decided to dedicate the bench that sits outside Benedict Hall at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA where Nunn used to sit atop the hill and watch practices below, in his honor.

Team patriarch, Dan Rooney, Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin, Art Rooney II, Bills' GM Doug Whaley and Omar Khan were all on attendance for the small ceremony in Nunn's honor.

Below are pictures taken by Mike Prisuta of WDVE and Steelers.com of the ceremony via Twitter.
