A page turns on the side of Pittsburgh.
After the announcement of Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement, it’s Kevin Colbert’s turn to leave the Steelers.
Steelers owner Art Rooney II confirmed on Friday that the general manager will step down after the 2022 draft but that the franchise and Colbert want to continue working together, with a smaller role for Colbert. To replace him, Rooney mentioned that Omar Khan (vice president of football operations) and Brandon Hunt (scouts coordinator) got an interview for the job.
General manager of the franchise since 2010, Kevin Colbert arrived at the Steelers in 2000 to become the director of football operations at the time.
