Holmgren Turns Down Seahawks Offer
"Two weeks ago we announced we would use the balance of the season to conduct an audit of our football team," said Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke. "We believe our work will ultimately lead us to both an effective structure and leadership for the Seahawks.
"While that process is ongoing, we also were aware of Mike Holmgren's recent interview and associated time pressures and met with Mike over the weekend. After a series of respectful discussions, Mike has declined our offer to rejoin the team given the structure we proposed.
"We hold Mike in high regard and wish the Holmgren family the very best with their new horizons."
Leiweke has said that whoever the new leader of the franchise is, "We're not going to join them, they're going to join us", indicating that whoever the new president/general manager is, he or she might not have total control of the football operations, as it pertains to the hiring/firing of coaches and other senior-level front office personnel.
Holmgren reportedly has a "full control" offer from the Cleveland Browns, who are now the clear-cut favorite to land the Hall of Fame head coach's services.
"I sincerely thank Paul Allen and Tod for all their support over the years" Holmgren said in the team's press release. "I thank them for reaching out to me and we conclude these discussions as friends."
