Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney released this statement on the passing of Bill Nunn Jr. Wednesday.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Bill Nunn. This is a very sad day not only for the Steelers organization, but for the game of football. It is hard to put into a few words what Bill’s many contributions to our organization have meant over his 46 years with us. On a personal level, Bill was a friend, mentor and trusted confidant.
The entire Steelers organization mourns the loss of Bill, and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Nunn family.
