Just as Co-Chairman Dr. John York and Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis had done days earlier for the 49ers, head coach Mike Singletary was also in London this past weekend to spread the word on his team’s involvement in the 2010 NFL International Series.
Singletary’s visit included television appearances with the likes of Sky Sports, the BBC and ESPN. He also conducted interviews with several prominent newspapers to help promote the 49ers-Broncos matchup at Wembley Stadium on Halloween.
Singletary has previously played in the UK when his Chicago Bears took on the Dallas Cowboys in the 1986 preseason. The experience was a positive one according to the Hall of Fame linebacker.
“The biggest thing I remember was the anticipation,” Singletary told NFLUK.com. “You felt like the entire world was watching you.”
Besides visiting with local media, Singletary also spent time with England Rugby head coach Martin Johnson where the two men discussed how to a build successful team.
“It’s great to meet other professionals like Martin Johnson,” said Singletary, who has sought out the advice of many great coaches from all sports. “You can always build on someone else’s experience and it’s really nice to hear from someone else in a similar situation because it confirms some of the things you already believe in.”
Video of Singletary and Johnson’s visit can also be viewed on nflukTV.
