This is certainly interesting coaching news.
The Bears have interviewed former Bears legend Mike Singletary for their vacant defensive coordinator job earlier this week, according to The Athletic.
Other candidates linked to the Bears' DC position have been James Bettcher, George Edwards, and Jonathan Gannon.
The 62-year-old Singletary coached the 49ers from 2008-2010 for 40 total games and a former seven-time Bears All-Pro from 1981-1992.
For his head coaching career with 49ers, he had an 18-22 overall record. He last coached in the NFL with the Rams as a defensive assistant in 2016.
Overall, he has had coaching roles with the Ravens (2003-04) as a linebacker coach, 49ers head coach, Vikings special assistant (2011-13), Rams (2016) defensive assistant, AAF's Memphis Express (2-6 record), and the Spring League.
Singletary was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.
This should be interesting to follow as Singletary is a very interesting candidate for Bears' faithful.
I would love to see the #Bears add Mike Singletary to their defensive coaching staff in any capacity other than defensive coordinator.— Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. (@wiltfongjr) January 20, 2021
