Steelers sign GM Kevin Colbert to contract extension through 2018 season

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed general manager Kevin Colbert to a two-year contract extension through the 2018 draft. “I am happy to announce that we have extended Kevin Colbert’s contract for two additional years,” Steelers team president Art Rooney III said. “Kevin’s work and footprint on our football operations have been a key factor in our success. We are excited Kevin will continue to lead our personnel department for at least the next three years.” Colbert, 58, is entering his 16th season with the Steelers and his fifth year as the team’s general manager. He joined the Steelers on February 15, 2000, and served as the director of football operations for his first 11 years with Pittsburgh. “I am truly grateful to Art and Mr. Rooney for the opportunity to continue my career with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Colbert said. “It is with great anticipation that we enter into the 2015 season in pursuit of another Super Bowl championship.” In Colbert’s 15 seasons with the Steelers, he has helped assemble teams that have won two Super Bowls (XL and XLIII), three AFC championships, seven division titles, earned nine playoff berths and had 11 winning seasons.
