Former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren, who spent Monday afternoon, Monday evening, and Tuesday with the Browns, reportedly exited the team’s Berea, Ohio facility late this afternoon.
Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Holmgren and agent Bob Lamonte were seen exiting the building at 5:00 p.m. ET. Lamonte’s presence suggests that negotiations on a contract have occurred or are occurring.
Per Grossi, it’s unknown whether the meetings are concluded, or whether Holmgren and team officials will reconvene.
Grossi also points out that team spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz has confirmed Holmgren’s visit.
Meanwhile, Browns safety Abe Elam has commenced the process of kissing up to the new boss, Twitter style: “Just finished working out @ facility and guess who I saw? The Legend himself. Cheesehead fans know him very well.”
Holmgren reportedly wants to have a deal in place somewhere by Christmas. He has been linked to Seattle, where he would serve in a front-office role. But there’s no evidence that the Seahawks are pursuing him.
If they ever plan to do so, they need to get moving.
