Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie appears to be reaching out to his former colleagues once again as reports surfaced that the team was in discussions with former Packers head coach Mike Holmgren to fill their open position for a team president.
The Raiders have appeared to be looking for a team president and Holmgren is just the latest name to pop up, according the ESPN.
Holmgren served as the Packers head coach from 1992-1998 while McKenzie was working in the front office. Holmgren most recently served as the Cleveland Browns team president from 2010-2012 until he was ousted when new team owner Jimmy Haslam bought the team.
Holmgren also served as the vice president and general manager while also being the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks for ten seasons, helping lead the team to a Super Bowl appearance.
The Raiders formerly interviewed Ray Anderson for the job, who is currently acting as the NFL’s senior vice president of football operations. Holmgren is just the most recent ex-Packer that McKenzie has reached out to, after having brought in many former Packer players. It is also another step along McKenzie’s team to restructure the organization after the passing of iconic owner Al Davis in 2011.
