03:08 PM ET 01.01 | With several NFL head coaching positions opening up this week, former Super Bowl-winning coach Mike Holmgren is willing to listen to offers from any interested teams. Holmgren, who left his team president position with the Browns last month, told Ed Werder of ESPN, "If anyone is interested, I'll listen." While he hasn't been coaching, Holmgren has been in the NFL for the past three years as a member of the Browns' front office. As president, he was the de facto owner of the Browns, representing the club at most league meetings and functions.

Well if Marty Schot is interviewing for the Chiefs job I see Holmie being a good fit in Ariz if they don't promoted Horton

If they don't hand Horton his hat.

I disagree, Holmgren still has the stuff to be a very successful NFL head coach.

He would want full authority over football operations and ask Bidwell to stay out of the way and just sign the checks.

After being the team president in Cleveland for three years, I don't believe Holmgren would be content to just be the head coach with Jerrah making all the personnel / draft and administrative decisions. If Holmgren thinks Jerrah would hire him as the GM / HC, I have four words for him: Jimmie Johnson / Bill Parcells. Jerrah will ALWAYS demand top billing with the 'Boys and anyone with Holmgren's / Cowher's / Reid's experience could never be happy or successful in that environment. The fact that Holmgren has been successful doesn't make him a good fit. IMHO, it actually works against him.

"If anyone is interested, I'll listen." Is anyone interested?

Too much personal baggage/tragedy sucked the life out of him. I wonder sometimes how can the guy even function.

Sorry. Wrong thread. Wrong coach. I was just reading about Andy Reid.

agreedalthough if he hired Reid as an assistant

He hired Gruden as an assistant back in the day as well.

And Ray Rhodes, Dick Jauron and Steve Mariucci. Not quite as distinguished as the Bill Walsh coaching tree...

Andy lost one son to a drug overdose and another son is in trouble with the law. He should just step away for a year and try to re-energize.
