Holmgren goes out a winner with Browns

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns announced after their 20-14 victory over rival Pittsburgh that the game was the last for Mike Holmgren as the team's president.

 

     The 64-year-old former coach said earlier this fall that he hoped to stay until the end of the season in an advisory role, but left open the possibility of an earlier departure.

 

     New owner Jimmy Haslam is replacing him with CEO Joe Banner, who spent 19 years with Philadelphia.

 

     The Browns went 12-31 under Holmgren, who was hired by former owner Randy Lerner to fix his franchise.

 

     Holmgren has indicated he's still interested in coaching. There have been stories about him joining the Dallas Cowboys.
