Holmgren to Seahawks: I'm waiting....

SEATTLE - Mike Holmgren really wants to talk to the Seahawks but it needs to happen soon.

Seattle's all-time winningest coach and former general manager said Friday on his semiweekly radio show in his home city that the Cleveland Browns are offering him "a wonderful opportunity" to run their football operations. Holmgren said he owes the Browns an answer "sooner rather than later."

The 61-year-old Holmgren told Seattle's KJR AM he would still like to talk to the Seahawks about their vacant GM and president jobs, though "there is a little bit of a time crunch here with Cleveland."

Holmgren said he hasn't been contacted by anyone from the Seahawks since GM Tim Ruskell resigned Dec. 3.

A team spokesman says there is nothing new to report on Seattle's GM search. It is still in what the team calls an internal "auditing" stage.
