PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers are retiring Franco Harris’ No. 32.
The Steelers already had a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception planned for the Raiders game on Dec. 24, but news of retiring Harris’ number came Tuesday after Steelers President Art Rooney II was expected to make a special announcement.
The Steelers said Harris’ number will be retired at halftime of the Week 16 game. Harris is only the third Steelers player to have his number retired after No. 75 Joe Greene and No. 70 Ernie Stautner.
