Letting the negative public relations last all of of one morning, Cleveland Browns retiring president Mike Holmgren says that he is upset at hearing his name being linked to “having interest” in a potential coaching job with the Dallas Cowboys. “I don’t know how any of that stuff gets started,” said Holmgren, on Monday morning, in regard to a recent report by Jason LaCanfora. “I don’t know anything about it — you got it straight from the horse’s mouth. Or as some would say, ‘the horses ass’” On Sunday evening, as the Cleveland Browns prepare to travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys, CBS Sports’ LaCanfora reported, via “sources close to Holmgren,” that, in the event there were a vacancy come the off-season, returning to the sidelines would interest him. Holmgren and Jones reportedly have ties dating back to the NFL’s competition committee, but by no means would this provide impetus to inquire about some else’s job. “Jerry Jones and I, I consider him a friend,” Holmgren said. “We worked on the committees a long time together, but I wouldn’t do that.” [The reported rumor] is everything I don’t believe in,” he said. Holmgren, in making a special appearance at Pat Shurmur’s address with members of local media, stated that while he does not know what the future holds, his goal will be to help out in Berea when called upon as long as he feels that he is contributing in a positive manner. The future Hall of Fame head coach stated that the last time he spoke to anyone about his future was during his press conference which occurred in mid-October; he has not spoken to his agent Bob LaMonte in over one month. “I was his first client and now I’m old news,” Holmgren said.
