Success as a head coach continues to elude Mike Singletary.
The former 49ers head man stepped down as the football coach of the Texas high school Trinity Christian Academy-Addison, the Dallas Morning News reported on Thursday. The report states that the former NFL Defensive Player of the year made the decision in December after going a combined 1-21 in two seasons at the school – including 0-11 in 2019. Singletary will focus on motivational speaking and consulting enterprises.
Trinity Christian has had past success under former and returning coach Steve Hayes, but also struggled in the years leading up to Singletary being hired.
His disastrous record there does come with a small caveat: The 61-year-old Singletary was in charge of two teams in 2019 as he was also the head coach of the AAF’s Memphis Express during the league’s short run. He went 2-6 with Johnny Manziel and Christian Hackenberg as his quarterbacks in Memphis.
His recent poor performances follow up three mostly mediocre seasons with the 49ers from 2008-2010 in which he went 18-22. Singletary took over for the fired Mike Nolan in San Francisco eight weeks into the 2008 season.
