Holmgren shoots down Cowboys coaching rumors

Browns president Mike Holmgren is on his way out. He just hasn’t decided where he’s going or what he wants to do.

Hoping to squelch a weekend report that he would be interested in coaching the Dallas Cowboys if Jason Garrett gets fired, Holmgren, who may leave the Browns before this season ends, went out of his way Monday to make it known he isn’t angling for any job.

“I haven’t booked my tickets to Dallas,” joked Holmgren, who spent Cleveland’s bye week with his wife, Kathy, in Arizona. “I haven’t talked to a single soul. That’s the first thing. The second thing is I honestly don’t know what the future holds or what I want to do. Honestly. Believe me on that. Thirdly, I’ve always been, quite honestly, bothered by the speculation during the season when coaches are trying to work.”
