“I am excited to announce that we have extended the contract of Kevin Colbert for an additional year,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a release. “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 was the pro scouting director with the Detroit Lions from 1990-99 before joining the Steelers as director of football operations in 2000.
