The Pittsburgh Steelers have officially gotten the band back together for one more Super Bowl run.
The Steelers and team vice president and general manager Kevin Colbert have agreed to a one-year contract extension, the club announced Monday.
While financial details have not been released, but the extension will keep Colbert in Pittsburgh through the 2022 NFL Draft.
“It has been such an honor to be in this position with the Steelers for over 20 years,” Colbert said. “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.”
The 64-year-old Colbert is entering his 22nd season with the franchise. He initially joined the organization as its Director of Football Operations in 2000.
“I am excited to announce that we have extended the contract of Kevin Colbert for an additional year,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “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.”
The Steelers organization has achieved tremendous success under Colbert’s leadership, winning two Super Bowls, three AFC Championships and ten division titles.
