PITTSBURGH — Steelers Hall of Famer Joe Greene is stepping down from his role in the team’s player personnel department.

Greene announced his retirement on Monday. He had spent the last nine years as a special assistant for pro and college personnel for general manager Kevin Colbert.

The 66-year-old Greene served as the cornerstone of Pittsburgh’s “Steel Curtain” defense after being taken in the first round of the 1969 NFL Draft. He earned four Super Bowl rings with the Steelers and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1987 following a 13-year career.
