Mike Holmgren spoke out today about his two days visiting with the Browns, and the way it came across it sounds like the Browns may have a new GM by Christmas. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for anybody,” Holmgren said today on his radio show on KJR in Seattle. “It’s about as good a job situation as you could ask for in this business.”
The 61-year-old stepped down as Seahawks head coach at the end of last season, but from the moment he walked away there has been talk about him coming back to the league as either a GM or a coach of another team. For now, it looks as if the Browns are the perfect fit.
“Exactly how the setup will be regarding me, that’s something I’m still thinking about,” said Holmgren. “It’s my obligation to let the Browns know when I’m thinking that way. There is a bit of a timetable we’re working on right now. I wanted time to come back and think about it, talk to some people about it, and that’s where we are right now.”
Holmgren wants to talk to the Seahawks about returning to the team he coached for 10 years. But to this point, Seattle is not showing the same interest. He said he has not been contacted by anyone from the organization since GM Tim Ruskell resigned December 3rd.
