Sources: Raiders eye Mike Holmgren
Williamson: California Love For Holmgren
There's plenty to like about a potential Mike Holmgren-Raiders union, but it would also raise plenty of questions, Bill Williamson writes. Blog
Holmgren would be a natural candidate because of his relationship with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. Both worked for the Packers.
For several months, the Raiders have been looking at potential new leaders for the team. They have been talking to Ray Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of football operations.
According to a source, Holmgren has visited the Raiders to talk about the position. Currently, he is on vacation in Europe.
There is no timetable for the Raiders to find a top front office executive.
Part of the job would be to lead the quest for a new stadium. Holmgren ran the Cleveland Browns until an ownership change led to his release from the team at the end of the season.
