Mike Holmgren considers the opportunity to run the Cleveland Browns ``very, very appealing'' and plans to give the team his decision ``sooner than later.''
Bet NFL Week 15
Holmgren, who spent two days meeting with owner Randy Lerner earlier this week, said during his weekly radio show Friday on Seattle's KJR that he liked everything he learned about the Browns during his visit. He called the chance to head the team's football operations ``about as good a job situation as you can ask for in this business.''
The Super Bowl-winning coach said he has spent the past two days at his home in Arizona weighing Cleveland's job offer.
Holmgren sounded as if he's leaning toward taking over the 2-11 Browns. He called Eric Mangini a good coach, and as a former coach he understands the difficulty in turning a team around in one year.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Browns 2-point underdogs against the Chiefs in Week 15. The over/under total for Sunday’s game has been set at 37 points.
