The Chicago Bears have been holding interviews for a couple weeks now, and it seems Phil Emery has finally found his guy.  The CHicago Bears have hired former Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman as their lead play caller on the field. It’s the first head coaching job in the NFL for Trestman, a long-time assistant in the league who spent the past five seasons coaching the CFL’s Alouettes and led them to two Grey Cup titles. Trestman was an offensive coordinator with San Francisco, Arizona and Oakland. If you need a little more understanding on why Phil hired Marc, look no further than his work with NFL QB’s. The Bears are turning to the 57-year-old Trestman in part because of his background with quarterbacks. He worked with Bernie Kosar as an assistant at the University of Miami and again when he was on the Cleveland Browns‘ staff in the 1980s. Trestman helped the Raiders reach the Super Bowl at the end of the 2002 season in an offense he geared for QB Rich Gannon, the league’s MVP that year. In recent years, Trestman has worked as a consultant in the NFL and in the offseason helped develop quarterbacks entering the NFL – including Cutler. His biggest task will be maximizing the man behind center and getting the offense to click. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
