Getting ‘Dream Job,’ Omar Khan Still Hasn’t Grasped He’s New Steelers’ GM

Two days ago, Omar Khan became the ninth General Manager in Pittsburgh Steelers’ history, replacing Kevin Colbert after a tremendous 22-year run.

Already familiar with the organization after spending the last 21 seasons with the black and gold under Colbert, Khan — who was officially introduced as the Steelers’ new GM Friday morning — called the promotion to GM a “dream job” and added that the promotion and new title hasn’t quite hit him yet.

“It’s just the fact that this is the dream job for me, this is the one I’ve always wanted,” Khan said to reporters Friday, according to video via the Steelers’ official YouTube page.
