Holmgren has interest in Browns


November 22, 2009

Former Seattle and Green Bay coach Mike Holmgren says he would be interested in working for the Browns.

Holmgren said on his weekly radio show on Seattle's KJR that he has not yet spoken to Browns owner Randy Lerner, who is looking for a "serious, credible leader" football authority to run his struggling team.

Holmgren did not say if he would like to coach again, but indicated he would welcome the chance to take on a rebuilding project like the 1-8 Browns.

Holmgren was Seattle's GM and coach for four seasons. He stepped down as coach after last season.

Earlier, Hall of Famer Jim Brown said Lerner had met with "one of the great football minds in this country," and hinted that person may have been Holmgren.
