The Rooney Family (See The Rooney Rule) They are a class act! The rule is named for Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the chairman of the league's diversity committee, and indirectly the Rooney family in general, due to the Steelers' long history of giving African Americans opportunities to serve in team leadership roles.
Former Steelers Linebacker James Harrison Announces His Retirement: "I've made a difficult decision to retire as of today," wrote Harrison on his Facebook page. "I am sincerely thankful to the people who have supported me over the years, first and foremost my family, the Rooney family and my Steeler family...and last but FAR from least, Steeler Nation. Thank you." (Aug.30, 2014)
