BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland president Mike Holmgren says he's disappointed and frustrated with the Browns' lousy season, but he pledged to stick with his plan to rebuild the franchise.
Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert met with the media for more than an hour Thursday and both pledged to "stay the course" with the Browns, who went 4-12 and are the only AFC North team not in the playoffs. Holmgren said he would steer clear of a "quick fix" and will not "blow it up and start it all over."
Holmgren praised quarterback Colt McCoy and believes he will get better, but he would not "anoint" McCoy as Cleveland's future starter.
Holmgren said he's committed to first-year coach Pat Shurmur. Heckert said the Browns will be active in free agency to find the "right" players.
