Mike Holmgren indicated to Greg Bishop of MMQB that he’s leaving the door open to an NFL return. “I know guys who coached after 65. I thought I would. The more I’m moving away from it, it’s flattering when you get a call from somebody. It strokes your ego. Then you start to think, Hey, I could do that! I mean, I miss it. I miss the coaching. I miss it,” said the 66-year-old, before adding that he’s “semi-retired.” Holmgren was sacked as Browns president after a three year stint and he still has the itch to get back involved in football. Here’s more from around the league..

- The 49ers are set to move into Levi’s Stadium, but commissioner Roger Goodell indicated that they might not be the only tenants there. “Well, we have two pro teams in the Bay Area. Obviously, the stadium issue in Oakland’s going to have to be resolved, too,” Goodell said, writes Dan Hanzus of NFL.com. “We believe a new stadium is appropriate for the Raiders. They have to make that determination whether they’re in a new stadium in Oakland or whether they feel that it’s best to join this stadium. We’re working on that, and that’s one of the decisions they’ll have to make.”
