A week after Mike Holmgren first arrived in Cleveland for meetings about "joining the Browns as the team's football leader" in a "czar" like position, and just five days after the team offered him a job, the the two sides announced Monday night what we all already saw coming: Mike Holmgren is joining the Cleveland Browns.
The Cleveland Browns announced today that Mike Holmgren has agreed to become club President. The team also has announced that Mike Keenan will transition to the role of Chief Financial Officer.
"We are pleased to announce that Mike Holmgren has agreed to join the Cleveland Browns," said Owner Randy Lerner. "We will spend the rest of the week finalizing the details of the agreement and will make a formal announcement next week, at which time we will make him available to the media."
There is sure to be reaction to this move at SB Nation's Dawgs By Nature.
