The Pittsburgh Steelers It is reported that they have found their new CEO.

And to the great joy of the team, to complete the search she did not have to go far.

According to the plural reports, Pittsburgh plans to name Omar Khan as its new GM. Khan has worked for the organization for more than 20 years, first joining forces with the team in 2001 as a football operations coordinator.

Khan takes up his new position, having extensive knowledge of contract deals and salary restrictions, after managing Steelers ’salary limit for more than a decade. In 2011, he was transferred to the team’s football administration department, where he worked as a director before moving to the position of vice president of football and business administration.

Then came his latest update – to the head of all “football and business” related in the Steel City.

Khan’s Hire is a vintage Steelers move based on loyalty and experience within the organization. He was born to an Indian father and a mother from Honduras. He is the first in both backgrounds to hold the position of NFL Director General.

He had little experience in football operations before joining Pittsburgh, and his only professional job was as a result of a student internship in New Orleans Saints during his stay in Tulein University. After a short internship, he was offered a full-time job in a team of only 20 years.

Awareness of Khan’s salary constraints led him to an informal role as a contract negotiator for the team, which he used to enter into huge deals with such as Ben Rotlisberger, Antonio Brown and TJ Watts. Although all three players are the highest paid in their position, Khan’s structural acumen has allowed him to work on contracts in a way that has allowed the team to retain other important players and acquire outside talent while staying under the hood .

Prior to the raise in Pittsburgh Khan was interviewed by Chicago, Houston, Miami and New York Jets for their GM positions.

Khan will replace GM Kevin Colbert, who retired after spending 22 seasons with the Steelers.

The team is also expected to be hired Eagles Vice President of Personnel Players Andy Weidl as GM Assistant.
