Could new ownership leave Mike Holmgren out of a job?

As the Cleveland Browns prepare to transition to new ownership, President Mike Holmgren plans on staying until the end of his contract, reports the Chronicle Telegram.

That contract keeps him on until 2014, and Holmgren says he has no intentions of leaving sooner.

Whether new owner Jimmy Haslam will want Holmgren on board is a different story. Haslam's $1 billion offer was accepted by Randy Lerner last month, and all that remains to complete the transaction is approval by the league's other owners. That vote will take place in roughly six weeks, and Haslam is not expected to have any problems getting the necessary support.

The primary concern is that Haslam, who plans to be a very hands-on owner, might butt heads with Holmgren, who currently has a very active role in team operations. But right now, both Holmgren and Haslam are only focusing on the 2012 season.
