Hall of Famer Mike Singletary to become high school football coach at Trinity Christian Academy

“I want winners!”

That was what Mike Singletary said in a famous postgame press conference in 2008 as the head coach with the San Francisco 49ers.

This week, Mike Singletary will continue his coaching career and look for winners on the high school level as he was announced as the new head coach at Trinity Christian-Addison (TCA), a Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) contender that has captured some 13 state titles across its history, most recently in 2012.

Singletary, 55, is a member of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame. He won a Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears in 1985 and was named to 10 straight Pro Bowls. In his new job, he returns to the state where he played his high school ball in Houston and his college ball at the University of Baylor.

Singletary has never been shy about his faith and in a 2010 interview with CBN, he shared how Jesus Christ has changed his life.

“I don’t know what tomorrow brings,” he said. “I know who holds tomorrow and that gives me reason to not worry about it. I put everything I have into today and do the best that I can today. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that I would take in place of my faith. To me, Christ means everything. I know that He’s got my back no matter what I do. So that gives me all the freedom in the world to be the man that He’s called me to be.”
