Browns Could Move On Without Mike Holmgren Under New Owners

The Cleveland Browns could be getting a new owner soon. Randy Lerner, the current owner, is in the process of selling off controlling interest in the team to Jimmy Haslam. If the deal goes through, the Browns could also be losing team president Mike Holmgren, reports Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland.

At a Friday press conference prior to the team's training camp practice, Holmgren confirmed the news about the sale and cast a shadow of doubt on his future with the team.

"That'll be answered probably down the road. You control the things you can control. I think we've done a lot of great things here in getting to this point, and we'll see."

Holmgren was hired by Lerner three years ago, given near complete control over the organization. During his tenure the Browns have an overall record of 14-34, having never won more than five games in a season.

Players were informed of the change ahead of Friday's practice.
