Despite having a strained relationship with Hall of Fame head coach Chuck Noll, Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw has said flattering things about the man who died last Friday at 82.
But Bradshaw didn’t back up his words with actions, reportedly.
According to 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, Bradshaw failed to attend Noll’s viewing on Sunday and Monday or his funeral on Tuesday, even though Bradshaw was in the Pittsburgh area Saturday night to do his one-man show, America’s Favorite Dumb Blonde.
Former Steelers P.R. executive Joe Gordon told 93.7 The Fan that Bradshaw also made no contact with Noll’s widow, Marianne.
“He’s the most insincere person I’ve ever known,” Gordon told 93.7 The Fan in a quote that Gordon specifically asked Joe Starkey of 93.7 The Fan to use.
While it’s unclear how many fans have been alienated by Bradshaw’s perceived failure to show respect to his head coach, Starkey and co-host Chris Mueller had some strong comments about Bradshaw on the air. It’s unclear from the link or the whether 93.7 The Fan attempted to reach Bradshaw or his primary employer, FOX, for a comment.
