Holmgren Says Final Farewell

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash--  There's an old saying: all good things must come to an end.  For Seahawks fans, that means it's time for Mike Holmgren to move on.

After 10 seasons and a nailbiter of a Super Bowl, Holmgren is calling it quits.  The coach met with reporters for one last time Tuesday.  He made it a known point-- there is no crying allowed in football; but the coach did have some close calls.

But he's not looking at his departure as the end for the Seahawks.  In fact, he expects bigger and better things to come.

"What happened this year, as far as wins and losses, it shouldn't happen again," says Holmgren.  "It really shouldn't happen again, because no one will get injured like we got injured this year.  It hadn't happened to me in 25 years and it's not going to happen again."

Jim Mora is set to take over for Holmgren next season.
