Mike Holmgren joins the Browns

Posted by Mike Florio on December 21, 2009 6:30 PM ET

Former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren was expected to give the Browns an answer on Monday regarding whether he'd accept an employment off from the team.

He has given them an answer.

And the answer is yes.

Holmgren has agreed to become President of the team. Mike Keenan, who previously occupied that role, will become the team's CFO.

"We are pleased to announce that Mike Holmgren has agreed to join the Cleveland Browns," owner Randy Lerner in a statement released by the team. "We will spend the rest of the week finalizing the details of the agreement and will make a formal announcement next week, at which time we will make him available to the media."

We're not sure what Lerner envisions by way of a "formal announcement" next week, given that the news of Holmgren's arrival has been, you know, formally announced by the team.

Maybe there will be a party, complete with confetti and cake and a special appearance by Eric the Clown.

Which, of course, that might be the current head coach's trade name come 2010.
