RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren is trying to quash any thoughts he will become the new leader of the San Francisco 49ers next season.
Holmgren said Wednesday his plan is still to take a sabbatical from football in 2009. The native of San Francisco, former high school coach in the city and former 49ers assistant called Seattle his home and the Seahawks his team. Everything else, he said, is just speculation.
San Francisco and Seattle are abuzz with rumors Holmgren is the prime candidate to run the 49ers next season. San Francisco (2-5) fired coach Mike Nolan this week and replaced him with Mike Singletary on an interim basis, beginning Sunday against the Seahawks (1-5).
Holmgren is in the 10th and final season as Seattle's coach.
