Best Answer

Dan Rooney (1932-2017) was a member of the Rooney family that owned the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also served as US Ambassador to Ireland from 2009 to 2012.

From 2003 to 2017, Dan Rooney was the chairman and part owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and was a non-playing inductee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His father, Art, founded the Steelers.

At the time of his death, Dan Rooney and his son Art Rooney II controlled 30% ownership of the Steelers, after two other Rooney family members sold their own shares in the team.
