Mike Singletary agreed to a two-year deal that will make him linebackers coach and assistant head coach with the Minnesota Vikings, NFL sources confirmed.

The former San Francisco head coach announced on ESPN radio Tuesday that he was headed to Minnesota after an 18-22 tenure with the 49ers. He was fired with one game left in this season.

The deal reunites him with Leslie Frazier, his former teammate with the Chicago Bears, and solidifies the future for the Hall of Fame linebacker. Singletary had spoken to two other clubs but chose the Vikings because of his relationship with Frazier.

Probably couldn't CAT together if spotted the C and A !!!! Gotta love that ridiculous Rooney rule !!!!

Realrealist, would you like to buy a verb in the sentence you got so excited over typing?  Don't people get sick of calling out people for their lack of intelligence only to lose major points in their favor while doing it?

Will Singletary be asked to drop his pants once in awhile or will that be left to just Viking players?  If the answer is yes, will he send these texts to recently retired Vikings or just masseuses?

What does the Vikings hiring Singletary have to do with the Rooney rule? Except for exposing vikingcat and RealityRules as complete morons. The rule only applies to head coaches. You guys need to stick to the easier sections of the website.

Not only he got hired as the Linebackers Coach,but also as the de facto Quarterbacks Coach just in case he needs to get in a QB's face.

Singletary will do a great job as linebacker coach.  Defensive players have thicker skins and can be yelled at on the sidelines without whining and walking off of the field.

This news dosn't surprise me at all. Frazier and Singletary have a great relationship since their years with the Bears. I also think that the two different temperments (Frazier being low key and Singletary being loud and in your face) will work well for the Vikings.

I just heard on local news yesterday that the Fridge is alive and actually doing quite well.
