Baylor's football program has its interim head coach in former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, but that is not expected to be a long-term solution for the Bears.
Could that long-term solution be a former NFL head coach?
Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary, a Baylor alumnus, told TMZ Sports that he is "absolutely" interested in the position.
“I believe in Baylor," Singletary said. "I believe in the school. Right now they just have to put the right leadership in place. Baylor can do great things.”
Singletary says he believes the Bears can recover from their current situation.
"There just have to be critical decisions made in the leadership that’s appointed," Singletary told TMZ Sports. "Make sure every step is a solid one. Put certain guys in place and move forward. But I know it can be a great institution."
Singletary's son, Matt, is a walk-on defensive lineman for the Bears.
Mike Singletary, 57, went 18-22 with the 49ers.
