Former Pittsburgh Penguins President and CEO David Morehouse is joining another local team.
The Steelers announced on Wednesday that Morehouse will be the team’s Senior Advisor to the President, Art Rooney II.
The newly creating position “will focus primarily on community and League-related initiatives,” the team announced on its website.
"We are excited that David is joining the Pittsburgh Steelers," said Steelers President Art Rooney II. "He was very successful during his tenure with the Pittsburgh Penguins, guiding them to a championship-caliber team both on the ice and in their community efforts. He will help us in many areas in the Pittsburgh community and Acrisure Stadium, as well as assisting in many NFL initiatives that involve the Pittsburgh Steelers.
We are thrilled for David to continue his success with the Steelers."
In a statement, the Pittsburgh native said he’s excited to join the team and has been rooting for the Steelers since he was little.
"During my time with the Penguins, I tried to learn from the Steelers and incorporate many of the things that Art II and his family have done with the team. It was an honor to work for great owners at the Penguins in Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle, and now I have a chance to work for Art and the Rooney family. It's a dream come true for a Pittsburgh kid."
Starting in 2004, Morehouse spent 16 years in the Penguins organization. During that time, the Penguins won three Stanley Cups and sold out PPG Paint Arena 14 years straight.
Morehouse resigned from the Penguins this past April.
A Beechview native, Morehouse attended the Community College of Allegheny County and Duquesne University.
