Mike Singletary is returning to the NFL.
Singletary has been out of the coaching game since serving as a linebackers assistant for the Minnesota Vikings from 2011 to 2013. Prior to that, he compiled an 18-22 record as San Francisco's coach from 2008 to 2010 before he was fired with one game to go in the 2010 campaign.
Singletary shared the news just hours after learning that Buddy Ryan, his former defensive coordinator in Chicago, passed away Tuesday at the age of 82.
Singletary's coaching career has been an up-and-down affair, but he'll work with a talented group of defensive players in Los Angeles.
