Team has not spoken about salary with Holmgren

BEREA, Ohio - 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.  

Mangini not unsettled by Holmgren possibility
Browns coach Eric Mangini says he's not unsettled by Cleveland's interest in hiring former  Seattle and Green Bay coach Mike Holmgren to run its football operations.

Mangini, 2-11 in his first season with Cleveland, spent time with Holmgren during the  61-year-old's two-day visit with the Browns.

Mangini described Holmgren's visit as a chance to get to know each other better. Mangini said they talked about the Browns and other aspects of this season but provided few details.

Holmgren came to town at owner Randy Lerner's invitation. He left without an agreement to take over the Browns, who have had just two winning seasons since 1999.
