After two seasons, Marc Trestman is out in Chicago


After two tumultuous seasons, Marc Trestman has been let go by the Bears. Jay Glazer was the first to report the move this morning.

Minutes before news broke of Trestman's firing, word got out that GM Phil Emery would also not be returning in 2015. Following their 9-13 loss to the Vikings on Sunday, the Bears dropped to 5-11 on the year. In his two seasons in Chicago, Trestman was 13-19 with no post season appearances. Hired with the hope of maximizing their offensive talent with guys like Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, Trestman and his staff were never able to get the results that many expected. Trestman arrived in the Windy City following a successful run in the Canadian Football League as a head coach with the Montreal Alouettes. In Canada, Trestman led his team to two Grey Cup titles, and accumulated a 59-31 regular season record, and a 5-3 post season mark. Prior to that, Trestman was a highly regarded quarterbacks coach in the league, coaching guys like Bernie Kosar (Cleveland), Jake Plummer (Arizona) and Rich Gannon (Oakland), among others.
