LATROBE, Pa. -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are retiring Hall of Fame defensive end Joe Greene's number No. 75.

The team announced Wednesday that Greene will be honoured during a ceremony on Nov. 2 when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens.

Greene, the fourth overall pick in the 1969 NFL draft, helped Pittsburgh win four Super Bowls during his 13-year career. The 10-time Pro Bowler was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1987.

The announcement comes just over a month after the passing of former Steelers coach Chuck Noll, who drafted Greene to become the cornerstone of the "Steel Curtain" defence.

Greene is the second Steeler to have his number retired. The team retired defensive lineman Ernie Stautner's No. 70 in 1964.
