PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert will stay with the team through at least the 2020 season.

The one-year extension will keep Colbert with the Steelers through at 2021 Draft.

"I am happy to announce we have extended Kevin Colbert's contract for an additional year," said Steelers President Art Rooney II. "Kevin continues to play a key role in our success and his dedication to our personnel efforts is unparalleled. We are pleased he will lead those efforts for at least one more year."

2020 will be Colbert’s 21st year with Pittsburgh, joining in 2000 as the team’s director of football operations until becoming the General Manger 11 years later.

"It's hard to quantify how fortunate I am to have been part of this organization for the last 20 years," said Colbert. "I look forward to the challenge of getting our team back into playoff contention while never losing sight of our ultimate goal – winning a Super Bowl."

Colbert is a North Catholic High School alum and is a graduate of Robert Morris University.

The financial terms of the deal were not released.

The 2020 NFL Draft begins on April 23 near Las Vegas.
