Colbert signed to a contract extension

Steelers Vice President and General Manager Kevin Colbert signed a one-year contract extension on Monday, keeping him with the team through at least the 2022 NFL Draft.

"I am excited to announce that we have extended the contract of Kevin Colbert for an additional year," said Steelers President Art Rooney II. "Kevin has been instrumental to the success of our franchise over the last two decades, and we are happy to have him continue for another year."

Colbert, 64, is entering his 22nd season with the team. He joined the Steelers in February 2000 as the director of football operations, a role he had for his first 11 years with the team, and he is in his 11th year as the team's general manager.

"It has been such an honor to be in this position with the Steelers for over 20 years," said Colbert. "I want to thank Art Rooney for his continued support in extending my contract another year. We've been able to accomplish some great things, but my determination to help the Steelers reach our ultimate goal – to win another Super Bowl – has never been greater."

Colbert's track record with the Steelers is a strong one. He was a part of building the Super Bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIII championship teams, as well as three AFC Championship teams. During his time with the team the Steelers have won 10 division titles, earned 13 playoff berths and had 16 winning seasons.

Colbert is a Pittsburgh native who attended North Catholic High School and graduated from Robert Morris University.

Financial terms of Colbert's contract weren't released.
