ESPNCleveland’s Tony Grossi reports that the Browns are in Chicago today to interview CFL head coach Marc Trestman. Trestman is currently the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes. Heading into this off-season, I never thought for a second I would type the name of a CFL team.
Trestman’s resume is full of experience. He’s coached football at a high level since 1981 as the QB coach at the University of Miami. Stops in Minnesota and Tampa preceded time in Cleveland in 1988 and 89 as QB coach and offensive coordinator for the Browns. The Alouettes were his first head coaching gig and he’s been there since 2008 including back-to-back Grey Cup Championships in 2009 and 2010.
Trestman is reportedly in Chicago to also visit with the Bears who fired Lovie Smith.
