If the sale of the Cleveland Browns goes through and Tennessee businessman and Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner Jimmy Haslam takes control of the team, Mike Holmgren may not be retained as the team's President, according to an ESPN Cleveland report.
In confirming the news of an imminent sale of the Browns, club president Mike Holmgren sounded as if he won't be part of the new organization.
"That'll be answered probably down the road," Holmgren said before the first Browns full-team practice of training camp on Friday. "You control the things you can control. I think we've done a lot of great things here in getting to this point, and we'll see."
Former Philadelphia Eagles president Joe Banner is believed to be part of the group looking to purchase the Browns and it has already been speculated that he may wish to use his 18 years of front office experience in Cleveland.
Team general manager Tom Heckert and head coach Pat Shurmur both worked under Banner when they were employed by the Eagles.
