Jeff Fisher and Mike Singletary were Bears teammates in the early 1980s. Will they be reunited in St. Louis?
As first reported by CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler, Singletary has interviewed with Fisher for the Rams' vacant defensive coordinator job. It's the only unfilled defensive coordinator position in the NFL.
The Rams also interviewed former Browns DC and Bears and Bills head coach Dick Jauron. Rob Ryan just landed the Saints' DC job after he and the Rams agreed he wasn't the right philosphical fit for St. Louis.
A Hall of Fame linebacker, Singletary, 54, spent the past two seasons as the Vikings' special assistant to the head coach/linebackers coach. He's never been a coordinator, but was head coach of the 49ers for parts of three seasons, going 18-22.
Singletary interviewed for the Bears' head-coaching job after Lovie Smith was fired, and has said he wants another chance at being a head coach.
The Bears drafted Singletary in the second round in 1981, taking defensive back Fisher in the seventh. They were teammates throughout Fisher's four-year playing career.
