Mike Singletary was the best linebacker of his era; nobody else played to his level of intensity or production. The Houston Worthing graduate was three-time All-SWC player at Baylor from 1978 to 1980. Singletary was voted Defensive Player of the Year and consensus All-SWC in both his junior and senior years. The Bear's defensive captain of three seasons once made an astonishing 33 tackles in one game against Arkansas. The first-round draft choice was selected, appropriately enough to the Chicago Bears, noted for their fierce middle linebackers. Singletary excelled in the Bear's 46 defense, making 10 consecutive Pro Bowls. He was voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1985 after the Bears won the Super Bowl and was honored as NFL Man of the Year in 1990. He was hired as the San Francisco 49ers head coach after the 2008 season, when he led the team to a 5-4 record as the interim head coach. Singletary compiled an 18-22 record as head coach of the 49ers before he was fired in 2010. In January 2011, he joined the Minnesota Vikings as a linebackers coach. Singletary, who is also a motivational speaker and ordained minister, was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1995.
