Bears hoping Trestman able to lure elusive CFL talent
on Jan 16, 2013
A few weeks after firing Lovie Smith, the Chicago Bears have named their next head coach: Marc Trestman of the Montreal Alouettes.
“Marc has been a proven winner in the Canadian Football League,” said Bears GM Phil Emery, referring to the fact the Alouettes have won two consecutive championships. “In addition to his vast knowledge of the game, particularly on the offensive side of the ball, we’re hoping Marc can bring in some of that elusive CFL talent. For too many years, players have been reticent to venture below the border, but now, just maybe, we can attract guys like Henry Burris and Chris Leak back into the NFL fold.”
