Holmgren returned to the Pacific Northwest after serving most recently as the President of the Cleveland Browns. Prior to that, Holmgren was the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks from 1999-2008. He guided the club to a 10-year regular season record of 86-74 (.538), giving him the most victories of any coach in that franchise’s history. His crowning achievement in Seattle occurred in 2005, when the Seahawks posted a regular season record of 13-3, captured the NFC West title and went on to play in Super Bowl XL before falling to Pittsburgh, 21-10. In Holmgren’s 10 seasons at the helm of the Seahawks, the club advanced to the playoffs on six occasions, two more times than they did in the previous 23 years of existence.
