With seven head coaching jobs open, and two more in limbo pending the hiring of general managers, there are a lot of names flying around.
One big one wants to make sure he’s not forgotten about.
Just-sacked Browns president Mike Holmgren told ESPN’s Ed Werder “If anyone is interested, I’ll listen.”
It’s slightly more subtle than wearing a sandwich board and ringing a bell, but there you have it, Holmgren might enjoy working again.
Of course, Werder reported in November that Holmgren had interest in only one job, the Cowboys vacancy that never emerged.
The 64-year-old-old Holmgren hasn’t coachaed since leaving the Seattle sideline in 2008 to go be the football poobah in Cleveland. While that might have been a flop, he has a 161-111 record as a head coach, with 12 playoff appearances in 17 years, three NFC titles and a Super Bowl win.
At a time when coordinators with sketchy resumes are getting multiple interviews, maybe giving Holmgren a chance to listen makes sense.
