Just got off the phone with Steve Shandy and based on his tone and the conversation that we had, I can tell you with "most" certainty that Mike Holmgren will not be the next head coach of the Bengals........or at least not until after 2019. Sure, the interest is there with Mike Holmgren, but NOT with the Bengals...... at this point in time. Mike Brown is committed to Marvin Lewis through 2019. From what I know: Holmgren (MH)opened the door with Mike Brown (MB)and the topic was discussed with MB assuring (MH) that he is committed to Lewis through the 2019 season, but opening the possibility of a giving Holmgren a "look see" after 2019. I don't expect anything to happen before 2019, BUT this is a business so there is always a window. At this time, Holmgren in before 2019, 94%. Hope this lays to rest all the Holmgren talk that has been springing up here as of late.
