The Chicago Bears will hire Marc Trestman as their next head coach, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Biggs reported the news over his Twitter account shortly after 1:00 am CT Wednesday. He says Trestman beat out Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell for the job.
The Bears fired longtime head coach Lovie Smith after the season despite having the team’s 10-6 record. Chicago GM Phil Emery says he fired Smith because, while the defenses were always strong under Smith, his offenses were too unproductive.
Trestman, along with the other finalists, is an offensive-oriented coach. He comes to Chicago after five seasons as head coach of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes where he won his division four times and the Grey Cup twice.
The post Chicago Bears reportedly hire Marc Trestman as head coach appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
