Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has officially called it a career.
The NFL Draft was his last order of business before retiring and handing the keys to someone else. He oversaw all of the Steelers’ draft picks this year.
Colbert had been with the team since 2000 and is considered one of the best general managers in modern NFL history.
During his reign, the Steelers had just one losing season, made the playoffs 14 times, won the AFC North 10 times, and won two Super Bowls.
Whoever replaces Colbert is going to have massive shoes to fill, to say the least.
The NFL world had some great things to say about Colbert on social media after his career wrapped up on Saturday.
The Steelers will likely now begin second interviews with GM candidates now that the draft is over. Colbert is still expected to stay with the team in a reduced role.
Colbert’s next stop will likely be in Canton.
