Pro Football Hall of Famer and legendary Bears linebacker Mike Singletary left the Minnesota Vikings back in January after serving as assistant head coach and linebackers coach for the last three seasons.
After a brief hiatus from the NFL, Singletary is back and in an entirely different role.
The NFL announced on Tuesday that Singletary has been named senior advisor to Troy Vincent, the league's executive vice president of football operations.
Singletary, along with Jimmy Raye II and Mike Reinfeldt were all hired as senior advisors for Vincent, and will serve as liaisons to NFL coaches and front office personnel.
“They bring sound wisdom, football experience and insight that helps us support our clubs and coaches as well as grow and develop our players and game,” Vincent said in an official statement.
Before joining the Vikings in 2011, Singletary was the Baltimore Ravens linebackers coach (2003-04), assistant head coach/linebackers coach with the San Francisco 49ers (2005-08) and head coach of the 49ers (2008-10).
