ESPN – The Chicago Bears ended their search for a new coach early Wednesday morning when they made the decision to bring aboard the Montreal Alouettes’ Marc Trestman as the franchise’s 14th head coach.
A noted quarterback guru, Trestman has been an assistant with eight NFL teams but has been out of the league for eight years. His stint in the CFL began in 2008 and eventually led to his succeeding Lovie Smith, who was fired by the Bears on Dec. 31.
I knew it wasn’t going to be long until the Bears signed a new coach after they fired Lovie Smith. I honestly had them picking someone up after Conference Championship weekend but they acted sooner rather than later.
They selected Marc Trestman, current Montreal Alouettes coach (Canadian Football League). He has notable NFL experience working as a quarterback coach in the 80’s and 90’s. How will hot shot Jay Cutler handle him? No one knows exactly but it should work out because Trestman was the one who worked with Jay Cutler and Bears backup quaterback, Jason Campbell, before their drafts.
I like the move. Now that this search is over, time to focus on the draft.
