The Bears will interview a couple of Vikings assistants in special teams coach Mike Priefer and former all-world linebacker Mike Singletary.
After Mike Nolan was fired mid-season in 2008, Mike Singletary became the 49ers interim head coach, and immediately made his presence known by his very public feud with tight end Vernon Davis.
The following season, Singletary was signed to a multi-year deal with San Francisco, but finished the year with an 8-8 record and was fired before the final game of the 2010 season, after the 49ers posted a 5-10 record.
A reunion with former Chicago Bears teammate Leslie Frazier ensued, as the Minnesota Vikings head coach invited Singletary to join his coaching staff for 2011.
Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweets: "Belief is McCaskey family backing interview opportunity for Hall of Famer Mike Singletary. Personally surprised he is on list."
