For 15 seasons, Bill Cowher served as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But before that, Cowher was a successful assistant in the NFL. And before that an NFL player. But if you go all the way back to college, you find out Cowher was also an All-American linebacker at North Carolina State University.

Cowher’s contributions to Wolfpack football are being recognized by the University. The team announced on Twitter that Cowher is being recognized as a former player by being inducted into the Wolfpack Ring of Honor.

“Bill Cowher has left an indelible mark on the game of football and is certainly beloved by Wolfpack Nation,” said Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan. “It is an absolute privilege to recognize his remarkable contributions and celebrate his outstanding career.”

“Throughout his career, Bill Cowher has epitomized what Wolfpack football is all about,” said head coach Dave Doeren. “He is a true mentor, leader, and icon in the coaching profession, and we are so proud to be able to honor him in Carter-Finley Stadium alongside other NC State legends.”

As the Steelers head coach, Cowher went 166-99-1. He was twice named Coach of the Year and he led the Steelers to a Super Bowl win.
