Mike Holmgren says on KJR-AM that he’s done coaching

Former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said during one of his regular segments on KJR-AM this morning that he has decided he will no longer pursue head coaching opportunities.

Holmgren said that he had “a couple” offers over the last few weeks — he did not specify the teams — but said he has decided that he is done coaching.

Holmgren said he would have been interested in coaching the 49ers but that they did not contact him and it became apparent to him they were not interested in talking to him.

“The important thing is that it’s (his coaching days) done,” Holmgren said.

Holmgren, who is 66, has not been a head coach since ending his career with the Seahawks in 2008. He has been back in the Seattle area

Holmgren was team president of the Browns from 2010-12 and has not worked since. He said mulling over the offers of the last few weeks convinced him that he was done coaching, especially with no offer coming from the 49ers.

Holmgren grew up in San Francisco and was an assistant with the 49ers from 1986-91 before becoming head coach of the Packers in 1992 and then Seattle in 1999.
