If you asked us to describe Mike Singletary’s tenure as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, we will simply direct you to the following video, because that basically sums it all up:
Priceless. Well, the former Niner head honcho is back in the news after reportedly interviewing for the Rams defensive coordinator position.
Singletary has been the linebackers coach for the Vikings for the past two seasons.
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.
