Redskins and Cowboys may be set to battle over Holmgren

By Mark Miller

Remember the days when Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, the highest-paid assistant coach in NFL history, was considered the clear heir to head coach Wade Phillips' throne?

Well, a new name has come into the picture that could push Garrett right out of contention: former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren.
Holmgren wants to get back into the NFL next season and the word has been for a while that he'd love to be coaching the Washington Redskins. But the Cowboys may have interest in snagging Holmgren, too. Owner Jerry Jones isn't exactly known for backing down from getting what he wants.

The two teams are likely to both try and get Holmgren or Mike Shanahan to run things next season, according to ProFootballTalk.
