Mike Singletary is proving once again why there are Hall of Fames players and there are Hall of Fame coaches.
And only in exceptional cases are they ever the same person.
You can count those exceptions on one hand. John Wooden. Lenny Wilkens. There's Larry Robinson and Jacques Lemaire, both NHL Hall of Fame players who coached their teams to Stanley Cups.
You can have a lively debate on the merits of good players turned head coaches/managers, like Don Nelson or Billy Cunningham, Felipe Alou or Mike Ditka. There is fodder out there for fascinating arguments.
But the truth is this: rarely do Hall of Fame players make even Hall of OK coaches.
