John Madden Criticizes 49ers Coach Mike Singletary For Yelling At His Quarterback

Mike Singletary, San Francisco 49ers head coach, spent some time during their 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night yelling at quarterback Alex Smith. Former NFL coach John Madden told KCBS in San Francisco that he had a problem with that.

"That's really not part of coaching, that's sometimes I worry about that. I see youth football and I see high school football and coaches yelling at players and I cringe when I see it," Madden said of Singletary's coaching style. "I think people get the picture that's what coaching is and believe me, that's not what coaching is."

Madden, who won a Super Bowl coaching the Oakland Raiders, went on to say that coaching has more to do with teaching and Singletary did the exact opposite.

The 49ers have not won a game yet this season and play the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.
