He followed that up with a move to San Francisco, ultimately being named Head Coach for two years, then spent three years with the Minnesota Vikings, and was back on the sidelines with the Los Angeles Rams until the end of the season in 2016. Since then, Singletary has partnered with organizations like National Child ID and has been active on the speaker circuit, sharing his proven strategies for leaders maximizing their organizational potential. Today, he is committed to raising the quality of life for the underserved and under-privileged communities of several large cities, with an emphasis on education, health care, and food insecurities through Changing Our Perspective, his non-profit organization.
