According to FOX Sports' Jimmy Johnson, the Chicago Bears have tapped Marc Trestman as their new head coach.
Johnson tweeted early Friday morning, "Looks like 2 of my guys getting NFL jobs..Chud Cleveland and my QB coach at U Trestman to Chicago." The Bears have not made an official announcement yet.
Trestman spent the past five years as head coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League, leading them to three Grey Cup appearances and two titles. He has a long history in the NFL dating back to 1985, landing OC and QB coach gigs with the Vikings, Browns, 49ers, Lions, Cardinals, Raiders and Dolphins before moving to the CFL.
A student of the West Coast offense, Trestman is renowned as a QB guru, guiding Rich Gannon, Scott Mitchell and Steve Young to career years. He also drew interest from the Cleveland Browns. The 56-year-old seems to be a good fit for Jay Cutler.
