An NFL source just told me # Bears will hire Marc Trestman as the next head coach.
Marc Trestman, coach of the Montreal Alouettes, selected over # Colts OC Bruce Arians and # Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell.

Hopefully Trestman can bring the Offensive innovation that the Bears were founded on. I know everyone thinks the Bears are a Defense first team, but I can't figure out where that came from.Halas and Clark Shaughnessy developed the T-Formation that "Thrilled the Nation" in the 1940 Champ game when the Bears rolled over the Skins 73-0. Halas was an Offensive innovator, the Bleeping Fight Song talks about Offense not Defense and the 1985 team was lead by an Offensive Head Coach.Championship teams usually are top 5 or top 10 in both Offense and Defense. (recent history has shown that some teams may not have season ratings in top 10 in both, but when they get hot they are)I for one am glad we are getting back to our roots, which is a Championship team that is good both offensively and defensively. Great Hire

Congrats Bears fans, Browns fan here but I'm an ex-Montrealer. Followed the Alouettes since I was a kid, got drafted by them too. Trestman has a long list of credentials, and was well respected by his players and fans. I think you've made a great choice for an HC and I wish you the best.BTW, the Bears are my fav NFC team, the first NFL game I saw was the Ditka coached Bears vs the Glanville coached Falcons (Deion Sanders)at the old Soldier Field in 1990. Got family in Chicago, love the city. We'll see ya in Cleveland next season.
