Chicago Bears interested in Trestman?

Posted By: Canadian Press · 1/5/2013 5:28:00 PM

The Chicago Bears apparently want to talk to Marc Trestman about their
vacant head-coaching job.

The NFL Network reported that the Bears will interview
the als head coach for their top coaching position.
Chicago fired Lovie Smith at season's end
after missing the playoffs despite posting a 10-6 record.

Trestman has spent the last five seasons with Montreal, leading
the club to Grey Cup titles in 2009 and 2010. The 56-year-old
Minneapolis native has a 59-31 regular-season record and led the
Alouettes to first place in the East Division four times.


Under Trestman, the Alouettes have advanced to the East Division
final four times and are 5-3 in the post-season.
Trestman remains under contract with the als but is believed to
have an escape clause in his CFL deal that would allow him to take a
job south of the border.

Trestman also has a history with Bears starting quarterback Jay
Cutler and backup Jason Campbell. He worked with both prior to them
being selected in the first-round of the NFL draft - Campbell went
to Washington in 2005 out of Auburn, Cutler to Denver in 2006 out of
Vanderbilt.

    Trestman has all the ingredients to be a successful NFL coach.The Als will sorely miss him.
    Anyways, after last years disappointing finish,it's a good idea to clean house even if we have to hire a new coach and G.M.
    it's also time to thank Calvillo for his services and give the ball to Adrien.
