CLEVELAND - A person familiar with the meetings has told The Associated Press that former Seattle and Green Bay coach Mike Holmgren is visiting with the Cleveland Browns for a second day.

Holmgren is discussing joining the Browns to head their football operations. The person spoke on condition of anonymity on Tuesday because Cleveland owner Randy Lerner wants to keep his search secret.The meeting is taking place at team headquarters in Berea, Ohio.

Last month, Lerner said he wanted to hire a "serious, credible leader" to run the team. The Browns are 2-11 and have lost at least 10 games six of the past seven seasons.

Holmgren previously served as the Seahawks GM. His visit was first reported by the Akron Beacon Journal and WKNR radio.
