In an offseason when plenty of up and coming coordinators will likely get a shot as NFL head coaches, one old name could be circulating around front offices once again.
The 10-time Pro Bowler went 18-22 in three seasons with the 49ers, but did oversee the development of a talented roster that took off under Jim Harbaugh. Like Lovie Smith, who also got a head coaching job after taking a year off, the break can be looked at as an asset for a relatively young coach (Singletary is 56).
While names like Adam Gase, Harbaugh and Todd Bowles will dominate the offseason conversation, there will always be the wild-card candidates coming in to shake up the process.
Rapoport believes Singletary will be one of them.
