BEREA, Ohio — Outgoing Browns President Mike Holmgren still hasn’t decided if he wants to coach again.

Hoping to squelch a weekend report that he would be interested in a coaching job with the Dallas Cowboys if head coach Jason Garrett gets fired, Holmgren said Monday he would never float a story about any interest in replacing another coach and “I haven’t talked to a single soul” in Dallas. Holmgren recently said he might return to coaching, but reiterates that he hasn’t made any definite decisions about his future.

Holmgren hopes to remain with the Browns until the end of this season in an advisory role to players and coaches.

The 64-year-old Holmgren was not offered a position under the Browns’ owner, Jimmy Haslam, who brought in former Philadelphia Eagles’ president Joe Banner as the club’s CEO.
