CHUCK NOLL, BILL NUNN: Race And The Pittsburgh Steelers
My monthly off-season FMTE column is now up at nfluk.com, you can link to it here. (Update: that link seems to have expired as of September 2016; you can find the whole article reprinted in my appreciation of Bill Nunn III here). It looks at Chuck Noll, the now-legendary Pittsburgh Steelers coach, and Bill Nunn, the scout who covered the traditionally black colleges for the team, and should be legendary. Even if you're not interested in football, per se, this is a fascinating slice of life in a very different NFL.
