The Cleveland Browns are into their second week of searching for a coach. They still don't have much from which to choose.
And Jon Gruden might not be an option.
Shurmur, 45, has been labeled a "front-runner" in some reports, but that can't mean too much in what's currently a two-man race.
The Browns have provided little information during a search Holmgren pledged would be "pretty wide." The team has only confirmed interviews after they have taken place and provided no details.
Holmgren didn't return a message left by The Associated Press, and a team spokesman had nothing to report Monday.
Fewell's interview would fulfill the NFL's Rooney Rule requiring teams to interview at least one minority candidate. Fewell was the Buffalo Bills' interim coach in 2009.
The Browns still might meet with Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who is believed to be on Holmgren's short list. The Eagles lost Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game to the Green Bay Packers, freeing Mornhinweg to interview, but Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said he hasn't received any paperwork from Cleveland asking to meet with his assistant, who has strong ties to Holmgren.
As for Gruden, he remains a mystery man in Cleveland's quest to hire its fifth coach since 1999.
Gruden grew up in Sandusky, Ohio, rooting for the Browns and could be drawn back to the NFL by what was once a dream job. He has been linked to several job openings in the past, most recently with the University of Miami.
Gruden, whom Holmgren hired as an entry-level assistant in 1990, was in Arizona working ESPN's radio broadcast of Monday night's BCS national championship game. A network spokesman said Gruden was unavailable for comment and that "he remains committed to ESPN and to Monday Night Football."
