Dan Rooney’s run as ambassador to Ireland is expected to come to an end this year.
Steelers club president Art Rooney told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he expects his father to step down from his ambassador position and re-join the Steelers in some capacity in 2012.
Art Rooney spoke at length about a number of issues, stressing the team needed to improve their scoring on offense and create more turnovers and sacks on defense.
Rooney also mentioned that Ben Roethlisberger needs to take less sacks as he approaches age 30. The offensive line has been a problem spot for Pittsburgh for too long and it sounds like the organization recognizes they need to do more about it.
