Mike Singletary
Mike Singletary is the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. He was a second-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 1981, a seemingly undersized linebacker from Baylor who was selected to a Bears-record 10 straight Pro Bowls beginning in 1983. Behind perhaps the greatest defensive line in franchise history (Richard Dent, Dan Hampton, Steve McMichael, William Perry), Singletary was twice named NFL defensive player of the year and was selected to the NFL Team of the Eighties by the Hall of Fame Board of Selectors.

Singletary missed just two games in his 12 NFL seasons, all with the Bears and was selected as the NFL Man of the Year in 1990 for his combined excellence and performance on and off the field. Considered by coordinator Buddy Ryan to be one of the great students of the game and the Bears' defense, Singletary was briefly considered by Dick Jauron for an assistant's position with the Bears but was not hired and eventually became defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers. « Show less

    Reader Q&A: Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    I know Brian Urlacher thinks he can play another two years, and given he's the oldest player on defense, do you think the Bears will look to draft a guy to replace him as early as next spring? If so, who would be the best option? Replacing a guy like Urlacher is going to be nearly impossible, but this is the team that invented the middle linebacker, so I know it'll happen.
