(Pittsburgh) -- Funeral arrangements have been set for former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Chuck Noll.

Noll died of natural causes Friday at his home near Pittsburgh. He was 82. 

The Hall of Fame coach won a record four Super Bowl titles with the Steelers. The team accomplished the feat over six seasons from 1974-79, an unprecedented run that made Pittsburgh one of the NFL's marquee franchises. .

Two public viewings are scheduled today at John A. Freyvogel Sons in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. Visitation will be from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

A funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 a.m.tomorrow at St. Paul Cathedral in Oakland.

Noll's 16-8 record in postseason play remains one of the best in league history.

He retired in 1991 with a 209-156-1 record in 23 seasons, after inheriting a team that had never won a postseason game in club history.
