MIKE SINGLETARY » 04/10/23.
Mike Singletary is perhaps most recognized as one of the Chicago Bears’ toughest middle linebackers with the ferocious eyes peering across the line into the opposing quarterback’s face. He was a member of the famed ’85 Super Bowl team and made 10 trips to the Pro Bowl in his 12 years as a player. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2001, as a player, he won the NFL’s “Man of the Year Award” based on his reputation for integrity and leadership within his profession and contributions benefiting his community, country and fellow man. In 2003, after swearing off many previous requests to coach, he answered the call and became the Linebackers coach of the Baltimore Ravens. He followed that up with a move to San Francisco, ultimately being named Head Coach for two years, and then spent three years with the Minnesota Vikings. Singletary and his wife, Kim, have seven children and nine grandchildren.
