Mora Not Interested In Redskins Job

Seahawks assistant Jim Mora Junior has withdrawn from consideration for the Washington Redskins' coaching vacancy, adding to speculation he's the heir apparent to Mike Holmgren in Seattle.

Mora is the Seahawks' assistant head coach and defensive backs coach. His decision came after Redskins owner Daniel Snyder sent a
plane to fly him east and hosted Mora at his guesthouse during two
days of interviews.

Mora was added to Holmgren's staff soon after he was fired as head coach of the Falcons in January of 2007.

The 59-year-old Holmgren is spending the weekend in Arizona with his wife contemplating whether to return for a 17th season as an NFL head coach.
