Despite a football coach in town with a much better track record (hint: Holmgren, Mike), Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini isn’t worried about what that means for him in the future:
Mangini maintained that all the conversation about Lerner searching for a football “czar” and Holmgren visiting the team’s facility is not unsettling to him.
“Not at all,” he said. “What I’m focused on and what I ask the players to be focused on is the task at hand, the opponent at hand. I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made.”
Mangini and Holmgren met, but did not talk specifics, according to the Browns’ current head coach:
“I thought it was a good conversation,” Mangini said. “He is obviously very talented as a coach. It was a good, positive conversation.”
What did they talk about?
“We talked about a lot of things — the team, different aspects of the season, things like that. I’m not going to go into the play by play of it,” he said.
Latest reports say Holmgren has been offered a front office job with the Browns.
