Mike Singletary and Leslie Frazier were part of the famous defense of the 1985 Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears. And now they’re teaming up again in Minnesota.

Former San Francisco head coach Mike Singletary is joining former teammate Leslie Frazier on his staff in Minnesota.

Singletary’s agent, Bob LaMonte, confirmed in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Tuesday that Singletary will be the linebackers coach and assistant head coach under Frazier with the Vikings. Singletary told ESPN 1000 in Chicago during a radio interview earlier in the day he’s coming to Minnesota.

Singletary was 18-22 in two-plus seasons in charge of the 49ers, who fired him last month before their final game.
