Holmgren Says He’d Meet with the Browns

There’s been plenty of talk about former Seattle and Green Bay coach Mike Holmgren coming to Cleveland to be the new GM, and now it seems that it actually may happen. 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 be 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.

    OK. If he agrees and the terms are decent, let him build the club. Give him authority over coaching hires. He can assess whether what Mangini and the rest of these “system” guys is the best way to proceed. For my money, “system” is another word for “corporate.” Football is not a “system;” it is a game played by individuals working together as a team, each using their individual talents to make the team stronger. Whatever “system” you choose to use, it must depend on the type and caliber of talent available to you.
