Steelers Extend Kevin Colbert's Contract

Less than a week after announcing head coach Mike Tomlin's contract extension, the Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert has signed a five-year contract extension.

"We are very pleased to announce that Kevin Colbert will remain with the Steelers for at least several more years," Steelers’ President Art Rooney II. "Kevin is without question one of the best in the NFL at his job and we are fortunate that he will continue to lead our football operations into the future."

Colbert has been with the Steelers for the last 11 seasons, and currently oversees the team's player personnel and scouting departments. Since his arrival in 2000, the Steelers are 103-56-1 (.643), with six division titles. Pittsburgh is 10-4 in the post-season over the last 10 seasons, winning two of the franchise's six Lombardi Trophies (XL, XLIII).

Colbert, a Pittsburgh native, previously worked in the Detroit Lions personnel department.
