During his last few years as a coach, Mike was the head coach at Trinity Christian and Memphis Express. The latter was a team in AAF that played only one season but also featured one of Mike’s sons-in-law. 

Lovingly called Samurai Mike by the fans, Mike was featured on the MGM+NFL ICONS series last year. The former NFL star sat down with the producers and the director (Paul Camarata) for two hours to discuss his career.

Does Mike Singletary Have A Son In The NFL?

Mike Singletary has no son in the NFL. Both his sons have chosen their careers away from the football field.

It looked like Mike Singletary’s eldest son, Matt Singletary, would follow in his father’s footsteps. And for a while he did. 

Matt played two years of collegiate football at Baylor University. In 2008, he was a redshirt freshman at Baylor and played in one game. Matt featured three times for Baylor in his sophomore year before transferring to California Polytechnic State University for his junior year. 

In his junior at California, Matt played 11 games at defensive end. He recorded 16 tackles and was rotated in the team alongside Kyle Murphy. But he didn’t see much action in his senior year, and that was the end of his football career.

Matt became part of a new industry after bringing down the curtains to his athletic life. He made his on-screen debut in 2014 in an episode of Chicago PD.

He featured on a few other shows, including How To Be A Vampire, Roommates, Chance, and iZombie. Matt is available on Instagram and shares various fitness tips along with sharing family snaps. 

Matt tied the knot with his wife, Hayley Singletary, in 2018, and in October last year, the couple became parents for the first time. He shared the first family snap of him sitting beside his wife and newborn.

Alongside sharing fitness tips and making short skits on his Instagram, Matt works as a business development officer at Lincoln Capital Management. He is also a creative director at Jeenyus Entertainment.

Mike Singletary’s other son, John Singletary, has kept himself out of the limelight. But looking at his Instagram handle, John might have pursued a career as an artist.
