CFL Coach Trestman Getting Bears Job

Former coach Jimmy Johnson sent out a tweet early this morning, with one bit of known news, and one surprise.

“Looks like 2 of my guys getting NFL jobs..Chud Cleveland and my QB coach at U Trestman to Chicago”

To translate from Twitter shorthand, that points to the Browns hiring Rob Chudzinski (which we knew) and CFL coach Marc Trestman getting the Bears job (which we certainly did not).

There are no other reports of Trestman being hired from GM Phil Emery’s cast of thousands, and Johnson’s certainly in a position to have heard. And it fits with yesterday’s news that candidate Dave Toub, the Bears incumbent special teams coach, was interviewing for lateral moves.
