Cleveland Browns President Mike Holmgren won't be interested in a head coaching job other than the potential opening with the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

While current Cowboys coach Jason Garrett still has the head coaching job, Holmgren held a press conference on Oct. 23 to clarify that he hasn't held discussions with anyone about that opportunity. He did not want to discuss the Dallas job specifically considering Garrett is still there.

But Holmgren also said he'd be interested in another opportunity to coach. CBS reporter Jason LaCanfora also wrote that Holmgren would be seriously interested in the Dallas job should it become available.

Furthermore, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones went on a radio show to say that he had spoken to Holmgren about the possibility of working together in the future. However, Jones said that he was still fully invested in Garrett's future with the franchise.

Dallas is 4-5 heading into Sunday's game with the Cleveland Browns.
