Mike Holmgren denies report of interest in Cowboys coaching job

Despite a recent report, Browns president Mike Holmgren said he has not expressed interest in the Dallas Cowboys' head coach position should it open.

Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren said he has not expressed interest in the Dallas Cowboys' head coach position.

Holmgren's denial comes after a report from CBSSports.com's Jason LaCanfora said sources told him Holmgren would have "serious interest" if Cowboys head coach Jason Garret was fired. Holmgren said he has not talked to the Cowboys or anyone about his future and would never inquire about a job before it is open.

"I honestly don't know what the future holds or what I want to do. Honestly. Believe me on that," Holmgren said, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "Thirdly, I've always been, quite honestly, bothered by the speculation during the season when coaches are trying to work and they're fighting like crazy for their jobs, and I would never do that."

Holmgren said the current plan is for him is for him to stay with the Browns through the end of the season. That could, however, change depending on discussions with new Browns CEO Joe Banner. During his farewell press conference in late October, Holmgren said he would consider going back into coaching after leaving the Browns front office.

The Browns travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys this Sunday. While Holmgren said he hopes to talk to Jerry Jones, it will not be about coaching the Cowboys. That, at least, according to Holmgren.
