Singletary Says Coordinator Job Not Offered To Linehan

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said there was a “misperception” that he had offered the team’s offensive coordinator job to Scott Linehan and Linehan had turned it down. Singletary said he laid out a list of parameters for the job and asked Linehan, ‘Can you do these things?’ Included in that was a commitment to a hard-nosed, physical offense. Singletary said he respected Linehan’s honesty when he told him he could not meet those parameters.
