    The Bears will interview a couple of Vikings assistants in special teams coach Mike Priefer and former all-world linebacker Mike Singletary.

    After Mike Nolan was fired mid-season in 2008, Mike Singletary became the 49ers interim head coach, and immediately made his presence known by his very public feud with tight end Vernon Davis.

    The following season, Singletary was signed to a multi-year deal with San Francisco, but finished the year with an 8-8 record and was fired before the final game of the 2010 season, after the 49ers posted a 5-10 record.

    A reunion with former Chicago Bears teammate Leslie Frazier ensued, as the Minnesota Vikings head coach invited Singletary to join his coaching staff for 2011.

    Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweets: "Belief is McCaskey family backing interview opportunity for Hall of Famer Mike Singletary. Personally surprised he is on list."

    for the head coaching vacancy? singletary? i think it's pretty obvious that singletary managed to do very little with a ton of talent in san fran and made the whole thing a circus show. he should stay an assistant.

    Singletary's on the list for who he used to be on the field. We don't need nostalgia choices at this stage...

    Totally agree Tarkus,he played great for us so this IMO is just a "thank you" show interview..anyway we don't need another defensive minded head coach.

    Don't discount Singletary. The man blows interviews away. He comes in with a plan and a staff assembled

    Problem is the staff sucks and the plan fails. But don't discount him doing a good enough tap dance to get the job
