Vikings may hire Mike Singletary
October 19
St. Paul Pioneer Press (scroll down) (registration required): "Mike Singletary's name already is being mentioned as a potential coaching staff prospect for the Vikings for 2006. The former Chicago Bears hall of fame linebacker is assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers."

Singletary is a character guy...if he does this job the way he played middle linebacker, he'll help the Vikes!

Mike reminds me of Jack Del Rio.

They have taken the same paths as far as coaching goes and have both had success with any team they have participated in.

He would be a great asset.

Singletary coach on Balt. staff as a D-Cord. and he is currently the 49ers Asst. Head Coach and D-Cord.

I think he would be perfect, was a good, clean, hardnose player that played with alot of passion. Plus I don't think he would take sh*t

Del Rio
10-19-2005, 10:50 PM
His specialty has been Linebackers coach.

If you have a coach that is defensive minded I think the best one to have head your team is a LB coach. Someone who understands the heart and brains of the defense.

When I think of top LB's of all time, he is in the top 5! He was so darn reliable and had traits we could only dream of our LB's having.

I like the Singletary call, I think he is a stand up guy and would make good decisions on who to bring in for his coodinators. As long as he doesn't bring in Jimmy Mac or Jimmy Horrible as the QB Coach, he's OK by me.

Singletary was the middle linebacker for 1 of the top 5 defenses of all time with the 1985 Bears!!

He was very hard nosed, and could hit. He had these crazy eyes that would scare dead people!


He was a Bear tho, that would be tough to get over!

Mike the D Co next year???? Get him on staff for the promotion is that what is happening?

I know that some announcers last year were quoted as saying that he might make a fine D Co. some day down the road.

Singleterry would help alot.. Even if he isn't headcoach.. D-coordinator for sure though! I so hope we get him.. He was an intense player.. Hopefully he could bring that to coaching

We should Hire Mike Singletary as our Defensive Coordinator, then hire back Scott Linehan as our offensive coordinator. (Zygi will spend for it I hope) then go out and hire someone like Jim Fassal as the head man!!

Not a bad idea really, but at this point Scott might want to be a head coach. I love the Singletary call, can you imagine him prowling the sidelines.

RandyMoss8404
10-20-2005, 12:21 AM
Singletary is fabulous, and excellent at teaching linebackers proper coverage techniques.

He'd be an amazing addition. Perhaps something good will come of a [potentially] disastrous year.

If we take a hit this year and don't make the playoffs, that'll be acceptable if we rebuild and get stronger.

i would love having a guy like singletary as d cordinator, i dont know if linehan would want to come back so i dont know what we should do at o cordinator, but the season is still in progress and hopefully we can turn things around quick that way we wont have to talk about some new coaches

10-20-2005, 01:11 AM
Both of those options sound good to me...I really like the idea of the college scouting guy from the Pats. If you just look at the Pats team, they have many good, solid players who play hard. Their coaching makes them better players, but you also have to give credit to the eyes that spotted them in college.

Singletary would be a great choice at defensive coordinator as well. Both of these hires would be great steps forward...I hope Zigy makes the right moves.

::::creeping out of the corner::::

Just a couple of small clarifications, folks -

The "64" defense is actually called the "46", that's the one made famous by Buddy Ryan.

Rex Ryan (his son), who is the current DC for the Ravens is weaving it into the Ravens D. I live near Baltimore, and they're been trumpeting it for some time. So far, it hasn't worked all that well (if at all). JMO, mind you.

Mike Singletary also spent some time in Baltimore - as Linebacker Coach (just the thought of Singletary teaming up with Ray Lewis was enough to cause me concern).

I remember watching MS back in his days wearing a Bears <spit> jersey. He was one of the few I truly feared whenever we faced them. He's got a good philosophy about coaching (I read plenty about it when he was in B'more), and with his skills, would make me a very happy camper if he were to come to Our Side.

OK, I've rambled enough for now, I'll go back to my corner :wink:

An ex Chicago Bear as a Vikings coordinator or coach that will be unusual to see if this is true.

CynicalVike
10-20-2005, 02:06 AM
There is no way either Singeltary of Linehan will be with this organization this season. They are under contract with their respective teams. To do so we would need permission from their organizations. Also, after the season is done, the only way we could get around asking permission to talk to them would be if the position we would be offering would be a promotion from the position they are holding already. Meaning, we would have to be offering the HC position ONLY!

I can see maybe offering that position to Linehan, but I doubt Singeltary is quite ready for that step yet.

Yes; I agree with you on the ex-Bear situation but we do need an angry, mean, SOB, who makes sense when he speaks, and will not tolerate BS from anyone as well as the ability to articulate himself with the media on a day in day out basis and will literally knock the snot out of somebody who even considers any kind of boat party, 5 interception games, or late for meetings......That guy is Mike Singletary.

audioghost
10-20-2005, 07:40 AM
Hows this: Off of Mr. Cheer or Die's Viking Underground....

I bolded my favorites.....

And Your Next Coach Is....
So, when the time comes that Mike Tice exits Winter Park with a pink slip in hand, who does Zygi and Mark Wilf bring in to next lead the Vikings? Let’s review the possible candidates in no particular order:

Available Ex-Head Coaches

1. Dan Reeves -- Reeves has won 200 games. He kept the door open after his dismissal in Atlanta for a return to the sidelines. How can you dismiss the sixth-winningest coach in league history?

2. Jim Fassel – With the Wilf’s history to the New York Giants, combined with Fassel's winning record Super Bowl appearance, I would say that alone will get him an interview.

3. Jimmy Johnson – With lack of prime ocean space in Minnesota, I’m not even sure we’d get a sniff.

Offensive Coordinators

1. Brad Childress, Philadelphia Eagles – Childress is head coach Andy Reid's right-hand man on offense. He has some of the same skin-tough qualities as Reid and he understands players. Brings a winning attitude.

2. Al Saunders, Kansas City Chiefs -- Saunders actually has NFL head coaching experience with the San Diego Chargers. He grew a great deal as an offensive coach when exposed to Mike Martz's system, and he also witnessed the Dick Vermeil way of winning.

3. Mike Heimerdinger, New York Jets -- He's been around Jeff Fisher (Titans head coach) and Mike Shanahan. He also took the Titans through a conversion of being a mostly run-oriented team to one that is diverse. QB Steve McNair's career skyrocketed under his tutelage. Now with the Jets.

4. Steve Fairchild, St. Louis Rams -- As the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under Mike Martz, his already-good reputation continues to grow. Fairchild will take over play-calling duties during Martz’s absence due to illness.

5. Maurice Carthon , Dallas Cowboys -- Carthon has been exposed to Parcells as a player and assistant, so he has the blueprint for success.

Defensive Coordinators

1. Rod Marinelli, Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Officially, he's the assistant head coach/defense. But he coaches the defensive line. Highly regarded and players respond. Years under Dungy and Gruden make him a worthwhile interview. And, I’m sure you remember Week One?

2. Ted Cottrell, Minnesota Vikings – Does he merit an interview? May also be serving as interim coach by the seasons end.

College Coaches

1. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa – Ferentz is familiar to local college sports football followers. He has an NFL background as a highly regarded offensive-line coach under Bill Belichick in Cleveland and Brian Billick in Baltimore. Combined with his success at Iowa, he will be on almost everyone's short list. NFL execs who watch him on the practice field and on the sidelines see a coach with leadership skills, organized, disciplined and communicative. Players respond to him.

2. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma -- He's young, he's a leader, and he wins. His teams are known for defense and won the 2000 BCS championship game finishing with a record of 13-0.

3. Ralph Friedgen, Maryland -- He was the offensive coordinator under Bobby Ross when the Chargers went to the Super Bowl in 1994, and he has had great success in building Maryland into a winner. He's gruff and that scares some NFL types, but he can't be ignored. Normally regarded as a guru of offense, but he has become whole in his approach to the game.

4. Jeff Tedford, Cal -- You better keep track of this guy. He has taken a broken program and quickly turned it into a winner. His reputation had been as a quarterback guru who helped Trent Dilfer, David Carr, Joey Harrington, A.J. Feeley, Akili Smith and Kyle Boller experience success. But he's more than a QB guy. He's organized, he's a leader, he's a teacher, he understands staffing, he's got some charisma and he's a game-planner.

5. Pete Carroll, USC -- Was being considered along with Dennis Green more than a decade ago to coach the Vikings. Will his time come due now?

College Guys "On the Radar"

1. Jim Tressel, Ohio State -- In a league where strong defense and a commitment to the run is a basic formula for success, he has a calling card.

2. Mark Richt, Georgia -- He's among a handful of college candidates who has no NFL experience, but he has a few admirers in the NFL because of his work at Georgia. His teams are physical. His offense is balanced. He has assembled an excellent staff. He's relatively young.

3. Randy Edsall, Connecticut -- Edsall has enjoyed loads of success as a former assistant under Tom Coughlin at the collegiate and pro level. And when you see what he has done at UConn in a relatively short ascension from Division I-AA to Division I, he's a pretty good sleeper candidate.

4. Houston Nutt, Arkansas -- His teams generally overachieve; they are feisty, physical, they know how to run the football and he consistently wins.

5. Karl Dorrell, UCLA -- He's done a solid job at UCLA and he has had NFL exposure under Mike Shanahan in Denver.

6. Dan Hawkins, Boise State University -- Hawkins has brought the Broncos to 44-7 in just four seasons and if he isn't the best college football coach in America, he can't be too considerably down the list. At the very least he is the most distinctively interesting. Boise State hasn't become more than just its blue Smurf turf because of one or two good players. Instead it has grasped success and kept squeezing tighter because it has a coach who doesn't think like most coaches, whose favorite place is outside the box, who believes in the democracy of the team and who considers instilling self-worth in players (which manifests itself in daring play calling) a lot more valuable that demeaning the hell out of them. In an era of screaming task masters, Hawkins prefers to build respectful relationships with his players.

Did I miss anyone? Yes, I did consider Jim Johnson of the Eagles but at his age I just did not think him viable.

Here's who I wanna see get the jobs:

Head Coach: Pete Carroll or Scott Linnehan or Dan Hawkins or Dan Reeves
Offensive Coordinator/Assistant Head Coach: Dan Hawkins or Scott Linnehan
Defensive Coordinator: Mike Singletary
Special Teams Coach: Rusty Tillman

Even IF Dungy were available (he signed a new contract with the Colts this year) I doubt he would come back here. IMO it was a real slap in the face to him when they hired Denny Green as head coach instead of giving him the job. The owners blew it back then bigtime!

From Pro Footballtalk. com

HECKERT, CHILDRESS TRADING WINGS FOR HORNS?



There's a rumor making the rounds in league circles that, once the dust settles in Minnesota, Tom Heckert will be the G.M. and Brad Childress will be the head coach.



Both Heckert and Childress currently are with the Eagles. Childress is the offensive coordinator, and Heckert is the V.P. of player personnel.



Since Heckert is under contract through 2009, the Vikings would be able to retain his services only if Heckert is offered "final say" authority over personnel.



Vikings owner Zygi Wilf has vowed to clean up the franchise for which he paid $600 million earlier this year. It's clear to us that, in order to do so, Wilf needs to clean out the coaching staff and front office, and start all over again.

What has Tillman done to merit staying on in ANY capacity other than waterboy or team bus driver? I personally cringe every single time we go to kick an extra point, kickoff, or punt. He flat out sucks.

On second thought.....don't let him get near the driver's seat in the bus. They'd be late for games on a regular basis. On that note.....our guys need water regularly during a game, too. Best to just say ADIOS!!!

Mike Sherman
Norv Turner
Jim Haslett

Does anybody want any of these guys???

I like Martz, Billick, Holmgren, Mariucci, or Haslett even....all would be a HUGE upgrade on the current coaching staff....but that doesn't say much!

Tice should be on that list, what about him.

Oh yeah, this is a list of coaches we want.

Personally, none of those guys.

Take a coordinator who have a lot of fire! Like Del Rio.

Ditka has fire!!!!! :grin:

if I had to pick one it would be Billick but I dont like the other coaches, IMO its time we bring in someone with a huge past success in coaching, defense and or offense.

Fisher would absolutely be awesome - I hope we get a shot at him. He hasn't had the guns (lately) to compete for a championship in Tennessee, but his teams have heart - they do not quit or mail it in - he's a leader
