49ers | Singletary let Foerster leave to be closer to family

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary originally denied the Washington Redskins' request to interview offensive line coach Chris Foerster when he heard the Redskins wanted to hire Foerster for the same position. Singletary said, "It would be a lateral move, and I said no. That was my initial response. So I was done with it. I got a call from Chris Foerster later on that really expressed that his family is out there, out east. He loved it here, loved what we are doing, but if there was any way to be closer to his family, he'd really appreciate it if he could do the interview and go from there. I think, for me, his family is important. Family is very important. It's something that I talk about. I could not not do that, give him the chance to be closer to his family. He's got a kid in high school, senior last year - all that sort of thing. So, I granted it."
