Sources: Pittsburgh Steelers expected to promote Omar Khan to take over as GM 10:07 PM ET Brooke PryorESPN Staff Writer Close Previously covered the Kansas City Chiefs for the Kansas City Star and Oklahoma University for the Oklahoman. PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to name Omar Khan the next general manager, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. After interviewing more than a dozen candidates for the general manager position, the Steelers selected Khan, who's been with the organization for more than two decades. He started with the Steelers as a football operations coordinator in 2001 and was promoted to director of football administration in 2011. He spent the last six seasons as the Vice president of football and business administration. Khan was considered a favorite during the exhaustive search that also included interviews with Brandon Hunt, Steelers' director of pro scouting. Outgoing general manager Kevin Colbert announced he was stepping down following the 2021 season, but he left open the possibility to stay on in an advisory role after more than two decades with the Steelers.
