The Dallas Cowboys will interviewing Mike Singletary for their head coaching vacancy, making him the eight since Bill Parcells retired a week ago.
San Francisco assistant head coach/defense Mike Singletary will interview for the Cowboys head coaching job. Itâ€™s the second time this off-season that Singletary has interviewed for a head coaching job. He also interviewed for the Atlanta Falcons job.
Singletary just completed his second season with the 49ers and his first as assistant head coach/defense. Singletary was promoted to the job after serving one season as the assistant head coach/linebackers. Before joining the 49ers, Singletary was the inside linebackers coach with the Baltimore Ravens.
Singletary was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998 after an outstanding career with the Chicago Bears from 1981 to ’92. A former second round pick out of Baylor, Singletary was selected to a team-record 10 consecutive Pro Bowls.
San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner is scheduled to speak with Jones at some point later this afternoon on the phone. He interviewed with the Cowboys on Sunday, and returned to northern California that evening. He appears to remain the lead candidate.
It continues to appear Turner is the odds-on favorite for the job, making looking at Singletary after concluding the Turner interview seem odd. And, if Jones is willing to hire a guy with only a couple years of coaching experience, Jason Garrett would seem the more obvious choice.
There’s some interesting speculation on the Dallas Cowboys Blog that Turner would love to bring Singletary in as his defensive coordinator. I’m not sure what his contract status is with the 49ers, though. If he’s under contract, they’re under no obligation to release him and, frankly, they’d be very unlikely to want to ship both coordinators off to Dallas.
