Khan has been with the Steelers since 2001 joining the team the year after Colbert took over as General Manager. Khan has had interviews with the Panthers, Texans, and Bears over the past two years for their General Manager openings. Khan was on considered to be the favorite to be hired as Houston’s General Manager in 2021, but the franchise changed course and pivoted back to Nick Caserio at the last minute.

According to a recent report from NFL insider Aditi Kinkhabwala the Steelers have hired him an assistant that is well rounded in the scouting aspect with Khan being more of a front office numbers guru. Thats Philadelphia Eagles front office man Andy Wiedel who is a Pittsburgh native.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
