Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers public address announcer and high school athletic director Randy Cosgrove has died, KDKA reported.

Cosgrove was the PA man for the Steelers for 15 years before resigning in 2012, passing the torch to KDKA Radio’s Larry Richert.

He also was the athletic director at Ambridge for 14 years before leaving in 2012. He was hired as Bishop Canevin’s athletic director in February. He was a former sports information director at Robert Morris and athletic director at North Hills.

“The Bishop Canevin community is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Randy Cosgrove,” said Mike Joyce, principal at Bishop Canevin. “Although a Crusader for a short time, Randy was knowledgeable, well respected and extremely dedicated to our school. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.”

Cosgrove was a Plum graduate and member of the district’s hall of fame.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
