The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Thursday that they’ve signed GM Kevin Colbert a two-year contract extension.
“I am excited to announce we have extended Kevin Colbert’s contract for an additional two years,” said Steelers President Art Rooney II. “Kevin’s dedication and diligent work have played a major role in our success. We are pleased he will continue to lead our personnel efforts for at least the next three years.”
“I have been very fortunate to have been a part of this organization over the last 17 years,” said Colbert. “I am very thankful for the opportunity to continue to be a part of our annual pursuit of a championship.”
This comes just a few weeks after the Steelers extended HC Mike Tomlin’s contract through the 2020 season, so it looks like Pittsburgh is set for the foreseeable future.
Colbert, 60, has spent the past 17 seasons as the team’s general manager and led them to a record of 175-96 (64.57%), which includes 11 playoff appearances, three trips to the Super Bowl and two championships.
