Could Marc Trestman be a good candidate for the Bears head coaching vacancy?

USA TODAY Sports

The current head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes might be worth a look from the Chicago Bears.

The Chicago Bears are still without a head coach nearly a week after parting ways with Lovie Smith. One interesting name to surface as a potential replacement for the long tenured Smith is current Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, who could have a lot of success in the NFL.

Trestman has been the head man for the CFL's Alouettes for the last five seasons, taking the team to three Grey Cups and winning two of them. The biggest beneficiary to a Trestman hire could be quarterback Jay Cutler as Trestman is known for his ability to develop quarterbacks. Trestman's quarterback for the Alouettes, Anthony Calvillo, has won two Canadian Football League MVPs under his tutelage.

But Trestman hasn't just seen success in the CFL; his previous NFL coaching credits include helping develop Bernie Kozar, Steve Young and Rich Gannon. Tresman was also Jake Plummer coach in his rookie season with the Arizona Cardinals. He also helped Scott Mitchell to the best season of his career when he was with the Detroit Lions.
