Question: I was wondering what you think the chances are of Mike Singletary leaving in the offseason for a possible head coaching job? I'm really hoping we get him back, but I know he is a good coach and might get an offer.

Answer: Good question. My guess is that Singletary won't be getting a head coaching gig in the offseason. It's not that he's a poor candidate, but rather that there won't be many vacancies. The most likely opening is in Arizona, and Pete Carroll, Bob Stoops and Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera are believed to be the top contenders there. If Rivera leaves Chicago, though, will they want to bring in another ex-Bear to run the defense? Hmmmm.
