Mike Singletary To Vikings; Leslie Frazier Hires Former 49ers Coach

The San Francisco 49ers fired head coach Mike Singletary during the 2010 NFL season but it didn't take long for him to find another job. Singletary tells a radio station that he's joining Leslie Frazier's staff with the Minnesota Vikings.

"I will be in Minnesota with Les," Singletary told "The Waddle & Silvy Show." "I will be a linebackers coach/assistant head coach."

Frazier became head coach of the Vikings when Brad Childress was fired midseason. Singletary and Frazier's relationship dates back to 1985 when both were teammates on the Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears team.

Frazier was officially hired as the full time head coach following the season and he's been working to build a staff since then.
