Sources: Raiders In Talks With Mike Holmgren To Join Organization
Sources said that the Raiders "have been talking" to Mike Holmgren "about a leadership position within the organization." Holmgren "would be a natural candidate because of his relationship" with Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie, with whom he worked for the Packers. Part of the job "would be to lead the quest for a new stadium" (ESPN.com, 2/26). However, Holmgren joining the team "might make for an uncomfortable dynamic," as McKenzie was hired by Owner Mark Davis to be a "football czar answering to no one" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 2/26).
