    Dan Rooney expected to return to Steelers in*2012

    Dan Rooney’s run as ambassador to Ireland is expected to come to an end this year.

    Steelers club president Art Rooney told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he expects his father to step down from his ambassador position and re-join the Steelers in some capacity in 2012.

    Good thing Art II took care of business while he had the chance.

    When he first took this job I just had a gut feeling it wasn't going to be a forever type of thing. As much as he loves Ireland and his heritage, his heart will always be with the Steelers.

    I always feel better knowing his watchful eye is ultimately overseeing things with the Steelers.

    Actually Art II was running things before Dan became ambassador.
