Singletary sticking with SF ... for now

Here's something for 49ers fans to be thankful about today -- Mike Singletary reportedly has pulled out of the running for the coaching job at Baylor University. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports this morning that Singletary, a Baylor alum, called athletic director Ian McCaw late last night to inform him of his decision. It sounded like Singletary didn't belive that the Bears were in position to compete on a national stage.
"I don't think it's going to work, and I don't think we can come to an agreement on some of the things that are on the table," Singletary reportedly told McCaw. "If you're talking a national championship -- that's one of the things that I mentioned -- then I want to talk to you. If you're talking just competing, I don't want to be a part of that."
Singletary also said further consideration of the Baylor job would be too much of distraction considering there are still six games left in the 49ers season.
However, this doesn't mean Singletary is snug in San Francisco. Look for him to be among the canidates when the inevitable NFL openings beginning popping up in late December and January.
