A Canadian Football League coach could leave North of the Border to return to the States to coach in the NFL.
According to the Chicago Tribute, Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman is the favorite to be the Chicago Bears head coach. If he is named head coach, he would replace Lovie Smith, who was fired after the season.
The writer for the story in the Tribune said he wouldn’t be surprised if Trestman was the last man standing. Trestman and Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell are the only two candidates that will be brought back for second interviews.
The story also states that Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is the third candidate.
On Friday, FOX NFL Sunday analyst and former NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson said that it looks like Trestman was going to get the Chicago job.
He has been the Alouettes head coach since 2008. And he has a 59-31-0 record as their head coach. He also coached the team to the 2009 and 2010 Grey Cup Championships.
He was the North Carolina State offensive coordinator in 2005-06. He served the 2004 season as the Miami Dolphins assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach.
He was the Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2001-2003. And the Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 1998 to 2000.
He served as an NFL assistant coach from 1985 to 2004. Besides the North Carolina State two-year stint, he also spent 1981 through 1984 as the Miami (Florida) Quarterbacks Coach/Varsity Coach.
