After the Browns’ victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon, the team announced that it was parting ways with former Team President, “quarterback guru”, and “credible leader” Mike Holmgren.  The game against Pittsburgh is to be Holmgren’s last with the team; he is scheduled to address the media with a departing press conference on Monday. #Browns announced Steelers last game was last for Mike Holmgren. He will officially depart the organization. — Tony Grossi (@TonyGrossi) November 25, 2012 Holmgren was hired by former team owner Randy Lerner in December 2009, but since the sale of the team to Jimmy Haslam III earlier this year and the naming of Joe Banner as new Team President, Holmgren’s role with the team has diminished. Holmgren’s departure comes only a week after he created a media blitz by chatting with Dallas owner Jerry Jones before last week’s loss to the Cowboys.  The highly publicized images of the conversation came on the heels of reports that Holmgren would be interested in coaching the Cowboys as his next job. Under Holmgren’s stewardship as Team President, the Browns were 10-29, with zero playoff appearances.
