Singletary heading to Minnesota as LB coach

No one's ever questioned Mike Singletary's ability to motivate young men. In fact, he was highly successful as a linebackers coach with the 49ers, and it seems likely that he'll be highly successful as a linebackers coach for the Minnesota Vikings.

Because that's where he'll be coaching in 2011 -- Singletary told the "Waddle and Silvy" show on Tuesday that he accepted the position with Minnesota.

"I will be in Minnesota with Les [Frazier]," Singletary said. "I will be a linebackers coach/assistant head coach."

Singletary had previously been rumored to possibly land in either Carolina or Minnesota, where the new head coaches (Ron Rivera and Leslie Frazier, respectively) are former teammates of Singletary's on the 1985 Chicago Bears championship team.

Singletary previously worked as the linebackers coach with the Ravens, before accepting a position with the Niners as linebackers and assistant head coach (where eventually he was elevated to "interim" head coach and then head coach). He'll now take that same position in Minnesota.

Given the way in which he flamed out while he ran San Francisco's team, it's a pretty big win for him. And also a pretty big win for Minnesota, who should expect to see improved play from their already stout linebacker corps.

Singletary heading to Minnesota as LB coach

Perfect fit if you ask me. One of the best linebackers to ever play the game as a linebackers coach for a team with an already pretty good nucleus defensively. 
Good for him. And good for Minnesota.
