Mike Singletary already has been an NFL head coach, but he struggled to articulate what ran through his mind before his interview for the Bears’ coaching vacancy this month.
“It’s hard to put into words,” Singletary told the Sun-Times. “You play at a place, and you remember what it was like and what it took to get to where you needed to go. To sit up there and talk about that job was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.” Singletary was one of 14 candidates to interview for the job, but there was some skepticism about how legitimate his prospects were. Singletary said he isn’t bitter the 49ers have reached the Super Bowl. In fact, he’s still thankful to many in the organization for giving him a chance to be a head coach.
But he wants another shot.
