Mike Singletary is now a head coach at a high school
Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary was not a horrible coach during his short tenure in charge. Yes, he could have done a better job, but he didn’t exactly have much to work with back then. After 10 years, it appears that he is getting another shot at being a head coach. However, it’s not for a professional or even a college team; it’s in high school.
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio has reported that Singletary is going to be the next head coach of Trinity Christian-Addison, a private school in Dallas.
The program has some impressive history. Since it was established, the school has won the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools state championship 13 times. However, the program has fallen on hard times in recent years. Over the last five seasons, they’ve gone 26-32.
Singletary took a predictable step back after losing the job in San Francisco in 2010. He signed on with the Minnesota Vikings as the special assistant to the head coach/linebackers coach in 2011 and held the job until 2013.
He interviewed with the Giants in 2016 but didn’t get the job. But he did end up signing on with the Los Angeles Rams as an adviser to the defense. But when Jeff Fisher was let go after the 2016 season, so was Singletary.
Is this a fall from grace for the former head coach? Or is he just trying to stay involved in the game? Whatever the case may be, good luck to him and his new team!
