Default 49ers News: Mike Singletary Could Be Eying Texans(theory)

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/7...e_Eying_Texans
Quote:
San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Mike Singletary has never really gotten a bone thrown to him despite all of the teams that have courted him to become a head coach. But then again, Baylor University, Singletary's alma mater, wanted to bring him in, the Hall of Famer declined.

It's rather clear he's holding out for a head coaching job in the NFL. But two questions come to mind: 1. How long will it be?; 2. Who will hire him?

One theory I contrived is that Singletary is possibly awaiting an opening with the Texans.

That's not too much of a stretch to think about, given that Singletary is originally from Houston and Matt Singletary, his son, is only 185 miles away in Waco as a freshman defensive end for Baylor. Furthermore, another of his children, Karen, also attends Baylor.

Lots of family right there, which is certainly appealing to Singletary, an ordained minister.

Singletary will have to learn to sell himself. When he stated, "I know I'm not a natural salesman. I'm just too honest," it's clear he's a modest, humble guy. That's expected from a man of Singletary's fine character. Still, he must realize the importance of self-promotion if he is to land any head coaching position, college or NFL. If he can learn that skill, it will be a huge step toward closing the deal during interviews.

At a glance, the Texans are 14-18 under two-year coach Gary Kubiak, whose first season was a poor 6-10 but last season witness an 8-8 record, the club's best since its 2002 inception. Given Houston's improvement, there may be an expectation of a double-digit-win season and a playoff berth in '08. If Kubiak doesn't get it done, who knows? A nosedive could mean the promising coach will be unemployed a year from now.

Maybe it wouldn't even take a head coaching offer to pique Singletary's interest, though. If the Texans' defense remains poor next season, it's possible coordinator Richard Smith's job may be in jeopardy. Should that happen and Smith is fired as a result, that could lead to an interest in Singletary as the replacement, which would give him the coveted coordinator experience that he may need on his résumé.

However, this is all just theory. One thing's for certain: Singletary has gained a good head of steam in NFL coaching circles and has a knack for connecting with players. It will be a matter of when—not if—he leaves San Francisco and lands a head coaching position.
I was hoping a position as a defensive Coordinator

Contrived theory is apt IMO. It would have helped his case if he would have served as a D coordinator somewhere. If his ultimate goal is to be an NFL head coach, the route may be faster staying in the pros than going the college route. If he/his team had flopped at Baylor, it would have set his career back.

If the Texans don't improve on their 8-8 season next season, I don't think Kubiak would get fired unless we absolutely imploded and, god forbid, had another season like the 2-14 one.

I know Mike Singletary will make a great coach someday, but really, he's not all that experienced right now. He carries an Assistant HC title, but really he's just the Linebackers coach with no defensive coordinator experience yet...

I like Singletary and have great respect for his HoF career. However, those things do not necessarily mean that he'll make a good coach. I have often wondered why he keeps getting overlooked, and maybe it's just that inability to sell himself.

I wouldn't mind hiring him right now for D-Coordinator.

And maybe if Gibbs leaves give him Assistant HC, and then give him the opportunity to HC for us if something goes terribly wrong.

That's not always necessarily a requirement it seems. John Harbaugh was just hired as HC of the Ravens when he'd spent all but one of his coaching tenure coaching the special teams unit of the Eagles. I think he was a secondary coach last season. And I think Jack Del Rio went straight from being a linebackers coach to the HC of the Jags.

To be fair to him the 49ers progress has been hurt by poor showings from Alex Smith rather than their defense.

He's hurt them & also Vernon Davis hasn't lived up to his hype either.

I think even if Richard Smith was let go, Frank Bush would be the Texans' first choice since Kubiak was after Frank Bush when he first came here. No offense to Mike Singletary. I'm sure he'll do well, but I don't think his road will take him through Houston.

Why don't we fire Richard Smith, promote Frank Bush, and hire Mike Singletary?

I have to say, it would be awesome to see one of the greatest LB's of all time coaching one of the best active LB's in the NFL.

I feel what you're saying about DeMeco, but I'd imagine any LB coach would be more than happy to have a chance to help develop Patrick Willis.

You are correct.... well, to a certain degree - except that Singletary first started coaching in 2003. John Harbaugh, brother of Jim started his coaching career (albeit college) in 1984 and is also the son of a coach.....

Experience:
Harbaugh>Singletary.

Singletary is Assistant Head Coach for the Niners. That means that San Francisco can deny another team from hiring him, unless they are offering the head coaching position.

So, Singletary will not become the Texans defensive coordinator in the near future (until his contract expires, or he is fired). Period. End of subject. Nuff said. Finito.
