Report: Raiders may bring in Mike Holmgren

According to, the Oakland Raiders have been talking to former Packers and Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren about a potential leadership role within their organization.

Holmgren would be a natural candidate because of his relationship with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. Both worked for the Packers.

For several months, the Raiders have been looking at potential new leaders for the team. They have been talking to Ray Anderson, the NFL’s senior vice president of football operations.

According to a source, Holmgren has visited the Raiders to talk about the position. Currently, he is on vacation in Europe.

There is no timetable for the Raiders to find a top front office executive.

Part of the job would be to lead the quest for a new stadium. Holmgren ran the Cleveland Browns until an ownership change led to his release from the team at the end of the season.


I really hope the Raiders won’t ask Holmgren to help out with player personnel because he did a terrible job in the Browns’ front office.
