Holmgren is leaving the Browns this week after initially planning to stay until the end of this season. Holmgren said after weeks of meetings with new owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner he has decided the time was right and feels he has “passed the baton.” Holmgren says he departs feeling somewhat unsatisfied because he wasn’t able to finish the job of turning the Browns into winners.
Holmgren adds he will return to his home in Arizona this week and contemplate his next move. He does not yet know if he will stay working in football and he denies any interest in coaching the Dallas Cowboys, a rumor that surfaced weeks ago.
