Cowboys bringing in Mike Singletary for HC interview

New, comments

From the DMN:

The Cowboys' coaching search took another twist Monday when the team said it would bring in Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary in for an interview on Tuesday.

Singletary, 48, has spent the last two seasons as San Francisco's assistant head coach/defense and in 2003 and '04 he served as inside linebackers coach for Baltimore.

 The pending interview further puts the Cowboys in compliance with the "Rooney Rule," which states a team must interview at least one minority for a head coaching vacancy. According to the NFL, the Bowles' interview had satisfied the rule.

Here's more on the coaching search from the DFW S-T:
San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner is scheduled to speak with Jones at some point later this afternoon on the phone. He interviewed with the Cowboys on Sunday, and returned to northern California that evening.

He appears to remain the lead candidate.

San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who interviewed with the Cowboys on Friday, said Monday afternoon he has not heard back from the team.
