Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert will retire following the 2022 NFL Draft, according NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport.
Colbert, who has been with Steelers since 2000, will end his 22 season campaign with two Super Bowls attached to his resume.
Colbert was first hired as director of football operations in 2000. Then, he was promoted to general manager in 2010 before finally getting his final promotion in 2016 to Vice President.
Following his departure, the Steelers have a few internal candidates available. Brandon Hunt and Omar Khan both make sense and have long been tenured with the organization.
Still, the loss of Colbert will be one that is felt throughout the organization and the NFL. In a model of stability, a lot of change is coming to Pittsburgh.
