Football odds info indicates that Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner hired Holmgren as president of the team.
NFL betting lines on the Browns have seen the team have a poor season this year but there is now hope for the future for Cleveland. "We are pleased to announce that Mike Holmgren has agreed to join the Cleveland Browns," Lerner said, "We will spend the rest of the week finalizing the details of the agreement and will make a formal announcement next week." The current president of the Browns, Mike Keenan will become the team’s chief financial officer.
The first move Holmgren is likely to make after this NFL betting lines season is firing head coach Eric Mangini. The Browns are just 3-11 this season under Mangini and most people who look at NFL betting lines believe Mangini is gone.
Cleveland has lost at least 10 games in six of the past seven NFL betting lines seasons. They have made the playoffs just once since 1999 as football odds stats show. Firing Mangini after just one NFL betting lines season might be unfair but that is life in the NFL. "Those types of decisions, the tough decisions, sometimes they aren't fair," Holmgren said. "But I would do everything in my power to make sure it's the right one and that everyone gets a chance to prove themselves."
NFL betting lines info shows that Holmgren turned down an offer to go back to Seattle in a front-office role. The Seahawks have been almost as much of a mess as Cleveland and in terms of NFL betting lines have been worse. "I was an advocate of him coming back, to the point that I made my feelings known to the people that make those decisions," said Seattle head coach Jim Mora Jr.
Cleveland is actually coming off an NFL betting lines win last week as they got huge games from Jerome Harrison and Joshua Cribbs to beat the Chiefs in football odds. Although the Browns are just 3-11 straight up this season they are a profitable 8-6 versus the football odds. Things might be looking up for the Browns in NFL betting lines. The Browns are actually favored this week in NFL betting lines as they host the Oakland Raiders.
