MIKE HOLMGREN RUMORS

Report: Mike Holmgren turned down chance to coach the Jets

The New York Jets are coming off a surprising 10-win season under first-year head coach Todd Bowles. Despite missing out on the playoffs, it was a successful campaign for the previously downtrodden franchise. Though, it does appear that the Jets were extremely close to hiring a bigger name to be their head coach before ultimately deciding on Bowles. According to Bob Glauber of...

Mike Holmgren wants to come back and coach the San Francisco 49ers?

Has any franchise had a worse 2015 calendar year than the San Francisco 49ers?  Their roster was gutted by everything from shock retirements to free agency to releasing troubled talent.  Head coach Jim Harbaugh was kicked to the curb and all he did was resurrect Michigan into a national program almost overnight.  And the career of franchise QB Colin Kaepernick, who was once...

Holmgren: Russell Wilson should sign deal from Seattle

By Jesse Reed Former Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren thinks Russell Wilson would be making a huge mistake to play out the 2015 NFL season under his current contract. Wilson is set to earn just $1.5 million if he and the Seahawks don’t get a deal done before the start of training camp — a self-imposed deadline.

Mike Holmgren confirms Oakland visit… on Seattle radio

When I wrote up the rumors regarding Mike Holmgren potentially coaching the Oakland Raiders, I joked about finding out more on Seattle radio. Apparently, it wasn’t a joke as Mike Holmgren actually did just that. “Yeah, I did go down there,” Holmgren told Mitch Levy. “A couple of years ago, I had met with [owner] Mark [Davis] about possibly working with the Raiders, and it...

Joe Banner, the 3-4 versus the 4-3 and agent Jimmy Sexton

One of the scariest things for Browns fans in the transition from Mike Holmgren to Joe Banner was Banner’s decision to switch defenses. It isn’t that Cleveland Browns fans have that much of a preference, other than they have a preference against switching schemes all the time. You know, continuity and all that? The Browns were a 3-4 defense with Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini...
