Mike Singletary to work with LA Rams' defense this season

LOS ANGELES (AP) Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary will work with the Los Angeles Rams' defense this season, returning to coaching after a two-year absence.

Singletary revealed the plans in a radio interview Tuesday, and the Rams later confirmed the arrangement.

Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher hasn't defined a role for Singletary, who is likely to be an adviser to the defense.

Singletary was the San Francisco 49ers' head coach from 2008-10, going 18-22. He was a linebackers coach with the Minnesota Vikings from 2011-13 before spending the past two years out of coaching.

He played 12 seasons for the Chicago Bears, winning a Super Bowl while becoming one of the best middle linebackers in NFL history.
