RIP Brett Keisel’s trademark beard (‘Noooooooo!’) … so now who is the hair apparent?

Brett Keisel’s beard is no more. The Steelers’ defensive end, who had sported perhaps the most iconic sports beard since Teen Wolf, shaved it off for charity on Thursday. It was the annual Shear Da Beard event at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center that benefits cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin, who helped shave the beard (it took four people), was a bit wistful.

“I like him with the beard. I think it’s his natural state. I think this thing has taken off and given him the opportunity to do what he probably likes to do anyway, which is not shave. He is a larger than life character and I think the beard fits his personality.”
