Now that George Kokinis has been ousted as general manager of the Cleveland Browns, team owner Randy Lerner has been trying to find a replacement. Mike Holmgren is apparently at the top of his list along with Ernie Accorsi ad Ron Wolf, according to the News-Herald.
The 68-year-old former Browns and New York Giants GM Accorsi says he doesn't want to come out of retirement to be a general manager but might do it if he got to run the entire football operation.
The 61-year-old former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren (who also was GM of Seattle) is supposedly the guy at the very top of Lerner's list. But Holmgren supposedly wants to coach again and not just move into the front office. So Brown coach Eric Mangini may have something else to worry about.
As for Kokinis, the rumor is that the Browns mandated that he go into counseling in order to help him not be so "withdrawn."
