Singletary will be working closely with head coach Marty Schottenheimer, Dale Lindsey, and Wayne Nunnely.
Former University of Hawaii defensive lineman Doug Sims is a right defensive tackle for the Chargers.
"We called him 'Big Business,' " Singletary said. "Sometimes he was a beast and played like an All-American and he could be great for three or four plays. But sometimes he had no business being on the field."
"He told me about it last week, so I've been looking forward to it," said Sims. "I'm juiced up to see him, I want to show him where I'm at now. It's a good opportunity for both of us."
Sims was picked up by the Chargers last year, but dislocated an ankle in training camp and spent the year on injured reserve. In 2001 he was signed as a free agent by Seattle then released and picked up by Washington. He spent the season on the Redskins practice squad.
"I think I showed them I could help them at some point, so they kept me around," he said.
Sims, 23, said he wants to shed about 10 pounds from the 340 on his 6-foot-3 frame. He looks forward to the Chargers' June 1-9 minicamp and reuniting with Singletary, his position coach from 1999 and 2000 at UH.
"There will still be a lot of competition," Sims said. "Even though I showed some good things, there are no guarantees. My goal is to beat out a couple guys and get in the starting rotation."
In addition to the minicamp next month, Singletary will participate in San Diego's July 5-Aug. 5 training camp.
