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.

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
