Rumor: Singletary to coach the Falcons

Jan 7, 2007 at 10:52 AM--


ProFootballTalk.com seems to feel that 49ers assistant head coach Mike Singletary has a good shot at becoming the next head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

From ProFootballTalk.com:
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that the Atlanta Falcons could fill their coaching void as soon as Monday.

Wow.

It seems like not enough time to make a sound decision on the successor to Jim Mora, especially since the new guy reportedly will have the power to determine running back Michael Vick's long-term fate.

Our wild-ass guess? 49ers assistant head coach Mike Singletary, reportedly a favorite of owner Arthur Blank.

Lance won't start. That job belongs to veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance will see the field,

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell is busy planning for the San Francisco 49ers, his Week 1 opponent on Sunday. One of many versatile offensive weapons that Campbell and his coaching staff have to prepare for is wide receiver Deebo Samuel, a player with whom the head coach is very familiar. When Samuel entered the draft in 2019, Campbell was an assistant with the New Orleans Saints. "Well, I remember when he was coming out, I loved the player too," Campbell told reporters on Monday (h/t to Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area). "I know we did when I was in New Orleans. But I think what makes him unique is his ability to carry the
