Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace has spent the past week interviewing candidates to replace recently retired defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. Many have been vocal about promoting from within, with names like Sean Desai and Jay Rodgers being rumored. However, it seems Pace is leaving no stone unturned. The three major names that have come outside of the organization for interviews have been James Bettcher, George Edwards, and now Mike Singletary.

The Hall of Fame linebacker spent his entire playing career in Chicago, a tenure that spanned 12 seasons. Singletary began his coaching career with the Baltimore Ravens, serving as their linebacker coach from 2003-2004. He also served as the assistant head coach for the San Francisco 49ers from 2005-2008 before being promoted to head coach from 2008-2010. He held an 18-22 record.

Since 2010, Singletary has bounced around multiple football leagues. His last NFL job came with the Los Angeles Rams, where he served as a defensive assistant. He most recently served as the head coach for the TSL Generals of The Spring League. The news of the Singletary interview comes just a day after the Bears checked in with James Bettcher.
