Head Coach, Alliance Memphis
Following an outstanding football career at Baylor University, Mike Singletary was a second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in the 1981 NFL Draft. A nearly unanimous All-Rookie selection, Singletary would become the cornerstone of the Bears’ innovative 46-defense, starting 172 games during his 12-year career, which is the second most in club history. Selected to play in a team record 10 Pro Bowls, Singletary was All-Pro eight times, and All-NFC every year from 1983 until 1991.
Singletary earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors in 1985 and 1988. In 1985, he led a Bears’ defense that allowed fewer than 11 points per game, as the team posted an impressive 15-1 record. He had 13 tackles and a sack in the playoffs leading up to the Bears’ 46-10 defeat of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX. The Bears’ league-leading defense held the Patriots to a record low seven yards rushing, while the hard-charging Singletary contributed with two fumble recoveries.
In 2003, Singletary became linebackers coach for the Baltimore Ravens, pairing him with Ray Lewis. The Ravens finished the season 10-6 and made the playoffs.
Following the 2004 season, Singletary joined the San Francisco 49ers as assistant head coach and linebackers coach. During the 2008 season, Singletary became the interim head coach. Taking over the 2–5 49ers team, Singletary was able to finish the season 5–4. He was then offered the full-time head coaching position. In 2009, Singletary led the 49ers to the team's first non-losing season since 2002.
Singletary joined the Minnesota Vikings in 2011, serving as the team's linebackers coach for three seasons. In 2012, the Vikings finished 10-6, earning a playoff berth.
In 2016, Singletary served as a defensive advisor for the Los Angeles Rams.
Singletary is currently the head coach of Trinity Christian Academy high school in Addison, TX.
