Marc Trestman likely received all he could ask for on Tuesday for his 57th birthday. The Bears brought three candidates to Halas Hall in Chicago for a third interview on Tuesday. Tuesday evening, only one was been left standing. Sources have confirmed that Marc Trestman, former head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, will accept the head coaching  job in Chicago. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the two sides reached an agreement on Wednesday morning. The Bears brought Colts OC Bruce Arians and Seahawks DC Darrell Bevell back to Chicago for an interview as well, but both have been dismissed. Bevell will interview with the Cardinals later this week, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Trestman will resign as the head coach of the Alouettes, and be introduced as head coach of the Bears either on Wednesday, a source told me. Trestman was last a coach in the league in 2004,  when he was the assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach of the Miami Dolphins. Trestman is widely considered one of the best quarterback coaches in the game by many. In fact, Trestman was quarterbacks coach of the Raiders when Rich Gannon won 2002 NFL MVP and Super Bowl XXXVII, and has been with Steve Young, Bernie Kosar, and Brett Favre. He also interviewed with the Colts in 2012, before Chuck Pagano got the job, and with the Browns in 2013 before the Bears hired him. Trestman will leave Montreal after five seasons as head coach in the Canadian Football League. He guided QB Anthony Calvillo to back-to-back MVPs in the CFL in 2009 and 2010.   Follow Down and Distance on Twitter – @DownAndDistance Follow Christian Hardy on Twitter – @CHardySports   The post Source: Marc Trestman to be next Bears head coach appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
