PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Three former members of the Steelers organization have a shot at getting into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Bill Cowher, Jerome Bettis and Dermontti Dawson are among the 103 “modern-day nominees,” according to Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette.
This is the first year Cowher is eligible – five years after his 2006 departure as head coach of the Steelers.
The list of nominees will be trimmed to 25 in November – then 15 in January.
Last year, Bettis and Dawson were finalists.
