Mike Holmgren tells KJR Radio Seattle he wants back in the game

Published on May 12, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

55659523Former Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren intends to remain out of football this coming season, but told KJR-AM radio’s Dave “Softy” Mahler on Tuesday that he plans to return to the NFL in 2010.

Holmgren said he doesn’t know if he wants to continue in coaching or take a front-office job, but made it clear that he’s not ready for retirement.

“I think I want to work again. Yeah, absolutely,” Holmgren told Mahler. “We’re going to take the year off, then after next season we’ll see. I plan to go back to work. Now where and in what capacity, that is

pretty vague. But I know this. I want to do something. That’s pretty much a given.

“I’ll be open. They’re hiring new coaches for one thing and I”m a bit of a dinosaur. I’m young at heart, but the simple fact is I’m not going to presume anything. I’ll be open to just about any possibility.”

Holmgren even left the door open for a return to the Seahawks, though he acknowledged that seems a long shot.

“Right now it would be pretty hard to say that,” he said. “But I will say this. We love Seattle. We’ll always have a home there. My children and grand kids are there. Tod Leiweke is the best thing that ever happened to the Seahawks. He’s done a wonderful job of exciting and embracing the community on the business side.

“I’d never say never. That would be a nice thing if I could come back and work in some capacity. But right now they’re pretty well set and they’re going to have a good season. But at some point, I would never rule that out, no.”

He said the football itch has been hard to ignore.

“On draft day I was getting involved watching on TV and I kind of had to check myself and say, ‘Listen, I don’t need to get all worked up about this right now.’ One of the purposes of taking a year off was to see how I’d react to that and how Kathy and I would react as a couple.

“We’re doing that. We’re sticking with the plan. But I have had days, certainly. You do something for so long and enjoy it so much, it’s human nature that you’re going to miss it.”
