Holmgren re-throws his hat into the ring: "If anyone is interested, I'll listen"

Former NFL coach Mike Holmgren is still considering a comeback to the coaching ranks, as he popped his head up to give just a little reminder that he's around in case anyboy forgot about him.

Ed Werder of ESPN talked to Holmgren this week, who said he will not aggressively pursue any jobs, but if "anyone is interested, I'll listen."

Holmgren, 64, relocated to his home Arizona after leaving the Cleveland Browns front office after the ownership change, and his name was floated earlier this season, either by him or his agent, as a potential replacement for Jason Garrett if he were to get the ax in Dallas. That reportedly didn't sit too well with new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, who was forking over big bucks to Holmgren for his services at the time.

So we can cross Cleveland as a landing spot for Holmgren.

Holmgren said in the past that he didn't have the energy to coach again, but that's appararently nothing a good night's rest and some 5-hour enegry drinks can't take care of.

Whether teams stay away from him is anyone's guess, but his committment to rebuilding a team, which most are in need of, will be the big question for owners.
