Steelers Quietly Promote Colbert to GM Role

It only took 78 years and six titles for the Steelers to finally get with the times.

That came on Monday when the team for the first time in their history named Kevin Colbert the teams General Manager.

A red carpet wasn’t exactly rolled out for Colbert, as the team made the announcement by simply putting the title into the team media guide under Colbert’s bio, with no elaboration except to note Colbert is in “his first year as the team’s general manager.”

Colbert was promoted from director of football operations, a position he had held since he was hired by the Steelers in 2000.

He has been successful in his time in the Steel City, helping assemble teams that went to three Super Bowls, winning two; won six division titles, made seven playoff appearances and had eight winning seasons.

The 54-year-old came to the Steelers from Detroit, where he was the Lions’ pro scouting director for 10 years.
