NFL News: Chicago Bears Hire Marc Trestman As New Head Coach

USATSI_8283499_154224518_lowresThe Chicago Bears were one of the many teams in the NFL that fired their head coach immediately following the end of the 2012 regular season. Although the Bears ultimately failed to live up to expectations after a red-hot 7-1 start to the season, Chicago finished with a 10-6 record resulting in missing the playoffs and Smith being let go by the team.

Smith’s firing was arguably one of the most surprising of the head coaches let go in the NFL recently with the team still posting a decent record regardless of missing the playoffs.

Once Smith was fired, the team began an extensive search for a new head coach interviewing many different candidates for the open position. Despite a number of candidates being interviewed, no clear cut favorite emerged, but the team managed to narrow it down to three candidates on Tuesday and ultimately hire the new head coach on Wednesday.

The Bears decided to roll the dice by hiring Marc Trestman of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes according to Brad Biggs and Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune:

The Bears took a swing for the fences by choosing Marc Trestman to be the 14th head coach in team history, an NFL source told the Tribune early Wednesday.

The Bears made it official with a news release shortly after 4 a.m. Trestman will be introduced Thursday at an 11 a.m. news conference (pushed back an hour from its original time).

Although Trestman has been very successful in the CFL leading the Alouettes to back-to-back Grey Cup titles, the Bears’ new head coach hasn’t been in the NFL for the last eight years and was a surprising hire over the two other finalists in Bruce Arians and Darrell Bevell.

Trestman most successful period of time in the NFL was with the Oakland Raiders from 2001 to 2003. Trestman began his stint with the Raiders as the team’s quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator shortly after leading the team to an AFC championship and appearance in the Super Bowl.

Former Alouettes coach last stint in the NFL was with the Miami Dolphins back in 2004 before heading to North Carolina State from 2005 to 2006 and ultimately taking over as head coach of Montreal in 2008.
