Chicago Bears Hire Marc Trestman as Head Coach
After a long search, the Chicago Bears have finally found their new head coach in former Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman of the CFL (Canadian Football League) for the 2013 season.
For a coach with the type of success he’s seen throughout his career, it’s safe to say that Trestman has been ready to take on a head coaching job in the NFL for quite some time now after leading the Alouettes to back-to-back Grey Cup victories from 2009-10 along with four division titles in five seasons. Trestman has always been praised for his success with working with quarterbacks and with the type of talent surrounding Jay Cutler and the rest of the Bears’ offense–expectations will be high in Chicago heading into 2013.
Last season, the Bears arguably had one of the league’s top offenses on paper considering they had Cutler, Matt Forte, and Brandon Marshall. The type of numbers Marshall put up were phenomenal, but the team still ranked 28th overall when it came to total offense–which is absolutely pathetic on their end.
Hopefully, the adition of Trestman will have an immediate impact for the Bears as they look to bounce back from what turned into a very disappointing 2012 season. In the first half of the years, Chicago looked like one of the top teams in football as they used a steller defense to jump out to a 7-1 start, but fell short of the playoffs after losing five of their final eight games.
The pressure will certainly be on for Trestman heading into his first year of head coach, but as mentioned before–he seems like the type of head coach that’s been NFL ready for quite some time now.
