Could Mike Singletary be an NFL head coach again?

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.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Mike Singletary, the former 49ers head coach, could be considered as a head coach in 2015. Singletary, who last worked under ex-Vikings coach Leslie Frazier in Minnesota, is apparently drawing some interest after spending the year away from football.

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.
