I came in wanting to change this, and make it successful, give the fans something they deserve. My thinking is, that you’ll see that in the next couple of years — that’s my feeling. I don’t think about legacy too much. In any job I’ve ever had, I’ve rolled up my sleeves and tried to do the best job I could do, be honest about it, and operate from a mutual respect and go. [...] I hired very good business people. I was very involved with budgets for the first time in my life, getting things in order so it was a profitable business. We never wanted to raise ticket prices. We got things in order, and I think we probably helped a little bit in the big business deal that took place. – Retiring Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren in his exit interview with the local media, addressing why he feels the team is in better shape today than when he was hired almost three years ago. The Browns are 12-31 since his arrival. The “big business deal” being referenced is the majority sale of the Browns which was approved this past October. [Related: “It” Doesn’t Have to be Pretty]
