|Report: Raiders talking to Mike Holmgren about leadership position||02.27.13 at 12:09 pm ET|
According to a report from ESPN, the Raiders have been talking to former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren about a leadership position within their organization.
Holmgren already has a relationship with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, who has also worked for the Packers. Holmgren is on vacation in Europe right now, and the Raiders have not set a timeline for finding a new top front office executive, although they have been actively looking for several months.
Holmgren was team president of the Browns from 2010 to 2012. He was released following an ownership change. According to ESPN, NFL senior vice president of football operations Ray Anderson has also been talking with the Raiders about a leadership position.
|Report: New Browns owner to fire Mike Holmgren, Tom Heckert||08.03.12 at 11:34 pm ET|
The Browns have a new owner in Jimmy Haslam, and it appears they will have a new front office as well, as Haslam will clean out the entire front office, according to CBS sports reporter Clark Judge.
Haslam, who bought the team on Friday, would be making his first move as owner by firing general manager Tom Heckert and president Mike Holmgren.
Heckert and Holmgren, who both joined the Browns organization in 2010, have gone 9-23 since they arrived in Cleveland. In that time, the Browns have started Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy at quarterback, and drafted Brandon Weeden in the first round.
The Browns have not made the playoffs since 2002, when they lost to the Steelers in the wild card round.
