PITTSBURGH (AP) - Steelers director of football operations Kevin Colbert has signed a five-year contract extension, one week after the team re-signed coach Mike Tomlin through the 2012 season.

Colbert, who serves as the Steelers’ general manager but without the title, oversaw the teams that won the Super Bowl during the 2005 and 2008 seasons. His contract was due to expire next spring.

The extension ends speculation Colbert might leave the Steelers after the 2010 season to rejoin Bill Cowher, Pittsburgh’s coach from 1992-2006.

Colbert, who grew up in Pittsburgh, was the Detroit Lions’ pro scouting director from 1990-99.
