Mike Singletary fired, steps down with class and grace

Mike Singletary could have taught violence and intimidation during his twelve year career as a perennial All- Pro middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears. But most of all he was known for his intensity and determination to beat you on every play.

Yesterday he taught grace and class after he was fired by the San Francisco Forty-Niners following two unsuccessful seasons as head coach. His statement:

“One of the greatest experiences of my life was having the opportunity to coach the San Francisco 49ers. What made it so special were the players. They were some of the most outstanding men I have ever been around in my life. The coaches were truly professionals. I wish the 49ers nothing but the best. I am thankful to the York family for having given me the opportunity to be a head coach in the NFL. I am indebted to them for that. I am also thankful for the faithful fans, I am just sorry I couldn’t give them more.”
