LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary will work with the Rams' defense this season, returning to coaching after a two-year absence.

Singletary revealed the plans in a radio interview Tuesday, and the Rams later confirmed the arrangement.

Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher hasn't defined a role for Singletary, who is likely to be an adviser to the defense.
