PITTSBURGH — The Steelers are going to have a party at the Pro Football Hall of Fame this Summer when Bill Cowher, Donnie Shell, Alan Faneca and Troy Polamalu join Bill Nunn as members of the organization who’ve been inducted.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame already announced Hines Ward would present Faneca at his induction this August, but Polamalu’s presenter had been unclear until Polamalu dropped a heavy hint at who his presenter will be Tuesday on Twitter:
Dick LeBeau makes perfect sense. A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame with 62 interceptions that still ranks tenth in NFL history, he coached Polamalu as the Steelers’ defensive coordinator.
During that time the Steelers ranked as the NFL’s top scoring defense four times and top total defense five times. Those units played a huge role in the organization winning its two most recent Super Bowls in 2006 and 2009. Polamalu played a huge role in all of those defenses, earning eight Pro Bowl appearances and named All-Pro four times.
