The Pittsburgh Steelers will have a new member enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH this summer, and it will be none other than former coach Bill Cowher.
Cowher was selected as a part of the NFL’s Centennial class, in honor of the NFL’s 100th season, and was the first member announced in the 2020 class to forever be enshrined in those hallowed halls.
Of course, when the announcement came on live television, everyone was watching and wanted to take to social media to congratulate Cowher. Maybe they were a former player, a current coach, or Art Rooney II himself. All took to Twitter to share some congratulatory words.
Check out everything people have been saying, and be sure to check back as more players/coaches can take to social media to wish Cowher the best as he takes the final leap of his career.
Congrats Coach Cowher...— . (@Ike_SwagginU) January 12, 2020
