Mike Holmgren has had a lot of success being a head coach in the NFL. He led the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowls in the late-1990′s, winning one of them. He also helped the Seattle Seahawks reach the big game as well back in 2006.
Since then, Holmgren retired and became the president of the Cleveland Browns. After stepping down as president, in what many call an unsuccessful stint, Holmgren has “serious interest” of returning to the sidelines now. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, he told NFL Today on Sunday that the 64-year-old would love to coach the Dallas Cowboys if Jason Garrett is fired.
Sources close to Holmgren tells La Canfora that he would want to coach the team due to “the competitiveness of the roster, the skill players present and his long relationship with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.”
Holmgren and Jones have worked for over a decade together with the NFL’s Competition Committee. However, sources say that there is no indication if the Cowboys have interest yet, along with the fact that Holmgren is looking for the almost the perfect scenario to join and coach again, otherwise he will just retire.
Garrett is on the big-time hot seat right now if his 3-5 Cowboys fall to the 3-5 Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, as it could cost his or Andy Reid‘s job. We’ll see how all of this unfolds.

PHILADELPHIA The best explanation for why Jerry Jones would attempt to sidestep last weekend's rumors about Sean Payton as a future Cowboys coach but then this weekend talk fairly openly about rumors about Mike Holmgren as a future Cowboys coach has nothing to do with Payton, with Holmgren, or with sitting Dallas coach Jason Garrett.
It has everything to do with Jerry being...

“I hear the weather’s nice in Dallas.”
The Cowboys got a crucial win over the Eagles yesterday by riding defensive and special teams touchdowns to victory…and by knocking Michael Vick out of commission and then harassing rookie QB Nick Foles just enough. Oh, and by Tony Romo not throwing a single INT.
So, let’s celebrate the big win by throwing fuel on the newest rumor...
