PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – One of Pittsburgh’s own will be remembered tonight.

NFL reporter John Clayton, nicknamed “The Professor,” has died at the age of 67 after a “short illness,” the Seattle Seahawks said in a statement Friday.

Clayton, a Braddock native, attended Churchill Area High School before graduating from Duquesne University. He then spent time covering the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Pittsburgh Press before heading west to cover the Seahawks. He then joined ESPN as an NFL insider and became a household name during his 20-year career at the network.

“We are saddened to learn of the passing of John Clayton,” the Steelers said in a statement. “He was a Pittsburgh media icon who covered the Steelers for over a decade in the 1970s and 1980s.”

Many local and national reporters, including KDKA’s Bob Pompeani, paid tribute to Clayton on social media.
