Soon-to-be-former Browns president Mike Holmgren made a surprise visit to the media room at team headquarters, to dispute a report that he’s already shown interest in the Cowboys coaching job (which, you know, isn’t open yet).
Holmgren told the reporters who were just sitting there when one fell in their laps that “I don’t know how any of that stuff gets started,” and insisted he wanted to remove himself from such talk.
He called such speculation”everything I don’t believe in in a story like that. I wouldn’t do that, and I didn’t.”
Of course, Holmgren’s shocked. The idea that he’s ringing up Jerry Jones is farfetched. Especially when he could just drop by this weekend when the Browns are there this weekend.
It’s why soon-to-be-unemployed people have people around them to send messages through the usual channels.
