Sports enthusiasts link Chet Holmgren and Mike Holmgren more often as they are sports personalities with the same surname.

While Chet is rising as a professional basketball star, Mike has decades of experience in football coaching. Over time, both of them have mesmerized audiences with their sports skills, which may have led their audiences to long for their relationship.

On April 22, 2024, a Twitter user named Tommy On The Spot tweeted, “I remember when I first heard about Chet Holmgren & thought wow imagine if he was related to Mike Holmgren?!

Likewise, another wrote, “In my head canon, Mike Holmgren is Chet Holmgren’s dad.”

These all seem to have emerged out of admiration for how they excel in their profession, nothing else.

Chet Holmgren and Mike Holmgren are not even distant relatives

Besides the same surname, Chet and Mike Holmgren hail from completely opposite directions. As far as the media is informed, they do not even have a generational relationship.
