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.

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
