Bears hire Marc Trestman as HC

Quote:
The Chicago Bears search for their next head coach has apparently come to a conclusion.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears will hire Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman as their next head coach.

Trestman was selected over Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

This will be very good for Cutler & hopefully with a good staff of assistants, for the Bear as well.

only about 20 years worth. Most notably he was offensive coordinator for the Raiders when they went to the Super Bowl.

Never been a head coach at any level before going to Canada, but I guess five years in the CFL could be seen as similar pedigree as being a good college coach.

One kinda odd thing is how many teams he's been with and usually only for a couple of years. Montreal was easily his longest job, before that he went through 9 NFL teams..

Yeah, it's not like the NFL is a foreign concept to him. He almost got The U job when they hired Al Golden. It will be interesting to watch. Coached Anthony Calvillo to two CFL MOP's as well.

He was obviously too competent to be in the CFL, he was only waiting for an opportunity.

That's really typical for OCs and DCs. Head coach gets fired, new one comes in and wants his own staff. OCs and DCs find jobs elsewhere. Rinse. Repeat.

Cautious optimistic about this signing. He's got a good track record of developing QB's, so we'll see what happens.

Now Trestman can make his dream come true...

I hope the Alouettes get a decent head coach (Constantin comes to mind here)

I might give it a little bit more credit than college coach because he was coaching pros.

Seems like a good hire. Guy shows he knows how to run a team and win.

He also has no problem bringing in the help he needs, which is why he was so successful in Montreal. He knew nothing about the Canadian game, so brought in coordinators that did. If he wants to run both sides of the ball in ways he feels would be improved by a quality assistant, he'll go out and get him.

Bears fans can expect:

- Lots and lots and lots of passes as the passing game should be dynamic. I expect Cutler's best season.

- Be prepared to wonder why he isn't running the ball in certain situations. Trestman has had moments in MTL where he became way too pass happy.

- For Cutler to be playing late in blowouts even though the common sentiment will be to get Campbell in there.

- Potentially abysmal special teams over time. The Als were atrocious on them this past season.

I like it overall but the Bears #1 issue is still OL. Anyone with idea how his OL's perform?

Also curious what happens defensively ,, I am hopeful that Marinelli remains at DC

Who is Kozar? Now Kosar, he was a great QB. But never heard of any Kozar before.

Anyone got an opinion of Aaron Kromer as OL/OC?

Have Saints had decent OL's under his watch

A quick google search will provide you with an answer.

Kromer's line last season also stood up under incredible duress. Despite teams knowing the Saints often had no choice but to throw, Kromer's group only allowed 59 hits on Drew Brees, the third best total in the NFL.

In the three years prior to 2012, the team finished third, 11th, and first.

As an OC, I couldn't tell you much, but as an OL coach I liked him a lot.

He's consistently brought in non-big name O-linemen and made them better. Jahri Evans is a top guard in the NFL and was drafted in the 4th. Nicks is the best OG in the NFL was drafted in the 5th. Brian De La Puente is a good C and was a UDFA. Bushrod was a 4th round pick and is a good LT for us.

The guy can develop O-linemen quite well. Not sure as an OC, but I imagine that is just a title as Trestman will handle most of the playcalling.

We have a good OL in Montreal and it usually performed at a high level.

Seeing stuff like this over last 4 years has drained all hope from me that Bears OL can do anything to protect Cutler

Having an OL guy though as OC maybe will mean he'll try to get the brass to upgrade that position since it'll appeal to him more.

Or that may be wishful thinking.

This will never happen in Chicago. Even Jason Campbell is nervous when Jason Campbell is on the field.

Seems like he's done a decent enough of a job assembling a staff already, so good first day.
