Holmgren was a prep athlete of the year at San Francisco's Lincoln High School in 1965. He was high school coach and history teacher in the city during the early 1970s. In 1986, Bill Walsh brought him into the NFL out of BYU to be his quarterbacks coach with the 49ers. He is building a new, second home in Santa Cruz, Calif., south of the Bay Area.
Scot McCloughan, the 49ers' general manager, was the Seahawks' director of college scouting before moving to San Francisco. Holmgren said he has a "good relationship" with "Scotty ... or Scot, I should say now."
Yet he didn't want to dwell on any of that Wednesday.
"Look it, this is my home. Seattle is my home. This is my team," Holmgren said of the Seahawks, who will become coach Jim Mora's team in a few months. "Right now, we've got to figure out how to win a game here for the Seattle Seahawks. Then all the rest of this stuff is ... speculation.
"Things in this crazy business change on a day-to-day basis."
