Mike Singletary will remain the 49ers’ assistant head coach and linebackers coach after withdrawing from consideration for the head-coaching vacancy at his alma mater, Baylor University.
Singletary said Thursday that a couple of sticking points surfaced during his talks this week with Athletic Director Ian McCaw and, rather than drag out the process, he decided to “let it go.”
Singletary said there were “philosophical differences” that would have prevented him from taking the job.
He said he had told McCaw that he would not leave his 49ers job before the end of this season.
“I was going to finish what I started. I wasn’t going to compromise on that,” Singletary said.
