Werder: Mike Holmgren “willing” to coach again

Mike Holmgren stands to double up on salary over the next couple of years due to the fact that he’ll presumably still be cashing checks from someone associated with the Browns between outgoing owner Randy Lerner and new owner Jimmy Haslam. According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Holmgren might be looking for a musical chair on the NFL coaching carousel once the music stops.

And maybe he’ll take Tom Heckert with him. It’s been thought that Tom Heckert could end up wherever Andy Reid ends up, but if Mike Holmgren’s going to end up coaching again, maybe he’s a more natural travel-mate for Tom Heckert.

You have to think that Dallas will be on the list of teams even as Jason Garrett’s job was recently reported as being safe.

    Won’t he have to settle with Haslam if he wants to work for someone else? He might profit, but I don’t think he can pull two checks.

    Wow, and I thought he was busy soaking in the sun having drinks with those little umbrellas.

    Go to Dallas and compete for air with JJ? No sir.

    i do believe that whatever he makes (or some percentage) gets lopped off of what Haslam (or Lerner if it was part of the sale) owes him per year.

    No, that’s Jimmy Johnson
