Remember Mike Singletary?
Yes, this guy:
Singletary is back in the news this week after it was reported that he would interview for the Chicago Bears‘ head coaching position on Tuesday.
His tenure as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers was troublesome, to say the least. After taking over for Mike Nolan midway through the 2008 season, he immediately butted heads with Vernon Davis, sending him to the locker room during a game (see video above).
However, Niners’ brass signed Singletary to a four-year, $10 million contract after a 5-4 record to close out the 2008 campaign. But after two mediocre season (8-8 and 5-10), he was shown the door in 2010.
Singletary has been an assistant coach with the Minnesota Vikings for the past two years, but now is looking to get back into the head coaching loop with the Bears, the team that he starred for in the mid-1980s.
If he gets hired, I hope he makes the same “I want winners” rant to Jay Cutler’s face.
