Mike Holmgren won't rule out coaching again

Otto Greule Jr

Ex-Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren is on his way out as president of the Cleveland Browns and said he hasn't ruled out a return to coaching.

Mike Holmgren says he misses the coaching part of his life, Mynorthwest.com reported on Tuesday.

Holmgren is currently the president of the Cleveland Browns but has told new owner Jimmy Haslam he doesn't plan on committing to the remainder of his contract. The Browns are only 10-29 since Holmgren joined the team in 2009 to try to turn the franchise around.

He remains mum on his immediate future but, when asked about a return to coaching. said he hasn't completely ruled it out.

"I know this: I learned a lot of things in the last three years. One of the things that I thought I knew and now I'm sure, I do miss the coaching part of it. I really do."

Holmgren was signed to a five-year contract at close to $8 million per season. He also told his wife it would be his last big adventure. But the Cleveland Browns were just purchased for $1.05 billion last week and Haslam announced last week that Holmgren would retire after the season's end. Holmgren said he doesn't want to stop working yet.

"I want to take one step at a time here, one day at a time," he said. "My first goal is, if I can, help this team and these coaches this season. Then I'm going to sit back and catch my breath and look around a little bit and see what happens."

Holmgren coached the Seattle Seahawks from 1999-2008, racking up a 72-56 record and leading the Seahawks to their first ever super bowl in 2005.
