Holmgren Interested In Returning To Seahawks

By  | 

SEATTLE (AP) -- Mike Holmgren wants to talk to the Seahawks about coming back.

Seattle's former coach and one-time general manager said Friday during his semi-weekly radio show in Seattle that he'd like to talk to Seahawks owner Paul Allen and chief executive officer Tod Leiweke about becoming the team's GM and perhaps president.

Those titles became vacant on Thursday when the Seahawks forced Tim Ruskell to resign weeks before his five-year contract was to end.

The 61-year-old former Super Bowl-winning coach with Green Bay is the Seahawks' longest-tenured and winningest coach. He spent 1999-08 remaking Seattle into an NFC champion during the 2005 season and a perennial playoff team until its fall the last two years.
