In The Region:

Though Browns president Mike Holmgren spent three years with the team, it's been hard to figure out what he was doing, or even was supposed to do, for his $40 million salary.  WKSU's Mark Urycki talks with our sports commentator Terry Pluto about the impact of Holmgren, and the confusion that was part of his tenure in Cleveland.

Listener Comments:

Now that Mike Holmgren is leaving, the local sportswriters like Terry Pluto and others at the Plain Dealer freely criticize him for doing little for his $40 million contract. But while he was in charge, Pluto and others at the PD fawned all over him and never dared to criticize him. What wonderful sportswriters we have. You can image what they will say about Pat Schurmer when he is fired.
