KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -Coach Mike Holmgren returned to the Seattle Seahawks' practice field Wednesday after missing two days with what the team emphasized was a minor medical issue.
Holmgren, who turns 60 on Sunday, stood on the sidelines throughout a 90-minute practice Wednesday wearing shorts and a team pullover on a misty and cool morning. He spent much of the practice chatting with Seattle SuperSonics coach P.J. Carlesimo, who was visiting along with the rest of the NBA team's staff.
Holmgren did not comment on his absence. He is to hold his normally scheduled news conference Thursday to end his team's final offseason minicamp.
Holmgren is entering his 10th and final season as Seahawks coach. Assistant head coach Jim Mora, also the defensive backs coach, has already been picked as his successor.
