Cardinals Come to Terms with GM Steve Keim on Four-Year Extension

The Cardinals have signed General Manager Steve Keim to a four-year contract extension, which takes him through the 2022 season, Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic reports.

Keim was promoted to the GM position in January 2013, and recently concluded his 19th season with the Cardinals.

He joined the organization as a college scout in 1999. Prior to GM, he was given the following promotions:

Director of College Scouting in 2006
Director of Player Personnel in 2008
Vice President of Player Personnel in 2012.

Since his promotion to GM, the team’s 49 wins the past five years are the most in any five-year span in franchise history. Since 2013, only four of his NFL counterparts have won more regular season games (New England’s Bill Belichick, Seattle’s John Schneider, Pittsburgh’s Kevin Colbert, Denver’s John Elway).

“Steve’s performance and accomplishments as Cardinals GM speak for themselves,” team President Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “His role in the team’s success over the last five seasons is undeniable. This new contract ensures that he will continue to shape our success going forward and we are thrilled about that.”
