Five NFL teams are looking for a head coach right now and a Super Bowl winning coach who is currently out of football says a couple of them have put in calls to see if he’s interested in making a return to the sideline.

Mike Holmgren said in an interview with Dave Mahler of KJR in Seattle that he has received “a couple of inquiries” from teams that are currently hunting for a head coach. Holmgren didn’t name names, but he does have links with a few of the teams looking for coaches.

He visited with the Raiders after Dennis Allen’s firing earlier this year, earned his first widespread NFL notice as the offensive coordinator with the 49ers and Ron Wolf, who was the general manager when Green Bay hired Holmgren in 1992, is consulting with the Jets on their searches for both a coach and general manager.

Holmgren didn’t rule out a return to coaching when talking about his visit with the Raiders and the 66-year-old told Mahler on Monday that he is “mulling things over” when it comes to pursuing the openings. He’s been out of football since his brief stint as Browns president ended in 2012. He last coached a game with the Seahawks in 2008.
