Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Mike Holmgren was on Sports Radio KJR and stated that he had a couple of coaching offers last week, but has decided that he is done coaching.
Holmgren also said that he would have been interested in the open head coaching position with the San Francisco 49ers, but he was never contacted by the organization.
While the 49ers are interested in a number of potential candidates for the position, it looks like Holmgren is not one of them. Holmgren has not coached in the NFL since the 2008 season when he was the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.
So far, the 49ers have interviewed Vic Fangio, the team's defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn, the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, Rex Ryan, the former head coach of the New York Jets, Mike Shanahan, the former head coach of the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos, Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, and Adam Gase, the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos.
The team has also shown interest or requested to interview Teryl Austin, the defensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions, Todd Bowles, the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, Jim Tomsula, the 49ers defensive line coach, and Kyle Shanahan, the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns and son of Mike Shanahan.
