KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) - Mike Holmgren is going to return as coach
of the Seattle Seahawks for the 2008 season. He adds that it will
be his last season as coach. There had been speculation that he
might step down after the Seahawks lost to Green Bay in the
Holmgren's record with Green Bay and Seattle, where he arrived
in 1999, is 170-and-110, one win behind former Redskins coach Joe
Gibbs for 10th in NFL history. Holmgren is 86-68 in nine seasons
with Seattle. He passed Chuck Knox this season for most victories
by a Seahawks coach.
Seattle will return the core of its team next season, and five
of the Seahawks' six division titles have come under Holmgren.
