Holmgren, Browns haven't discussed money yet
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Mike Holmgren and the Cleveland Browns will talk again, and money has yet to come up in the discussions.
Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz says the second conversation will occur in the coming days, but offered no specifics. He did say the team and Holmgren have not talked salary, despite reports that Holmgren could command upwards of $10 million a year to run the Browns football operations.
Before Holmgren can be hired, the Browns would have to interview a minority candidate to comply with the NFL's "Rooney Rule." Bonsiewicz said the Browns have been in contact with the league to be certain the team is clear on the rule.
He would not say if the Browns already have interviewed a minority candidate -- or any other besides Holmgren.
