The Steelers are closing in on a new General Manager.

The team has concluded the interview process and now will choose among the six candidates who received second interviews, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Steelers had two interviews with internal candidates Brandon Hunt, their pro scouting director, and Omar Khan, their vice president of football and business administration.

Eagles vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl, Titans vice president of player personnel Ryan Cowden, Buccaneers vice president of player personnel John Spytek and former Bills G.M. Doug Whaley also interviewed twice.

Kevin Colbert announced Jan. 28 he was retiring after the draft. Colbert has been with the Steelers for 22 seasons and took over as General Manager in 2010 after a decade as the director of football operations.

  1. Obviously.

    To watch this franchise’s collapse is a thing of beauty. They have no QB and are in a shambles without a rudder, except for Mike Tomlin. lol

  2. You can count on the Rooney family to make a good decision here.

  3. touchback: the steelers have been well run for a long time, and must have been beating your team for a while to engender such strong feelings of pleasure at something’s collapse.

    history says not to count your team’s wins against them just yet. especially if you are in cincy or cleveland.

  4. How do you know they have no quarterback? You haven’t even seen him play yet. No one has. Nice try though.

  5. Will be one of the two who were interviewed twice. Steelers are always deliberate, which is part of what makes their franchise one of the most respected in the NFL. Hardly a team in decline.

  6. Omar Khan was brought into the Steelers as a salary cap expert back when the salary cap had begun. As they say the cream rises to the top. I hope he gets the job he deserves it.

  7. To watch this franchise’s collapse is a thing of beauty. They have no QB and are in a shambles without a rudder, except for Mike Tomlin. lol

    That’s funny! Tells us how the mighty Pats defense did against The Bills…oh also tell us how your all star QB did ….what a tool.

  8. The Steelers are no longer run by a “football family.”. That left with Art sr. and Dan. Just look at what they do during the games with all of the photo ops now. Art II’s focus or knowledge is on football. Perfect example, I believe the Steelers now have 4 sets of brothers on the team. Are we saying the brothers are the best at their positions or are we just carrying them to keep people happy? Not a good football decision. Neither was drafting Kenny Pickett 2 rounds earlier than anyone expected. Here comes 4 years of more mediocrity or worse.
