SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -Mike Singletary is staying with the 49ers for now.
Singletary pulled himself from consideration for the Baylor head coaching opening Thursday. He said he wasn't offered the job at his alma mater.
``For me, it never got to that point,'' said Singletary, who met with Baylor officials for five hours Tuesday.
The Hall of Fame linebacker has stirred interest for head coaching jobs in the NFL the last two years, and there are expected to be plenty of openings after this season.
``My preference has always been that I wanted to stay in the NFL,'' said Singletary, who passed up an opportunity to coach his son, a redshirt outside linebacker at Baylor, in order to keep his NFL head coaching prospects alive.
Singletary hired agent Bob LaMont, who handles Mike Nolan, Jon Gruden, Mike Holmgren and several other NFL coaches, in the offseason.
``I know when it happens, I'll be ready,'' Singletary said.
