The Bears’ wide-ranging search for an offensive-minded head coach is taking them north of the border. To Montreal.
Ian Rapaport of NFL Network reports that the Bears will interview Alouettes coach Marc Trestman.
Trestman spent 18 years in the NFL as an assistant coach. He left the NFL after the 2004 season, and he has been working for the Alouettes since 2008. Last year, Trestman was interviewed for the Colts’ head-coaching job.
Trestman helped train Tim Tebow before the 2010 draft, which would put the Bears in the speculation conversation regarding possible landing spots for Tebow in 2013.
Though it would be great to hear Bob Swerski muttering “Tebow” along with “Ditka” and “sausage,” that’s most likely not happening.
