Marc Trestman hoisting CFL Grey Cup Championship Trophy
The Statement: Marc Trestman runs an efficient, quarterback-friendly offensive system and will coach Jay Cutler into a top ten performer.
The Facts: Trestman has coached in some capacity since 1981. He started as a volunteer coach with the Miami Hurricanes. In '83, he coached a possible future Hall of Fame quarterback named Bernie Kosar. That year the 'Canes tallied more passing yards than rushing and won their first NCAA national championship, upsetting the heavily favored number 1 ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The following year, Kosar set school records in pass completions (262) and yardage (3,642). Trestman would later join Kosar in Cleveland as the Browns quarterbacks coach, Marc preached efficiency then as he preached efficiency in his opening press conference with Chicago. Bernie Kosar is renown for his accuracy and decision making.
Former Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer Steve Young said there was "no question" that Trestman would get the best out of Jay Cutler. Young came from Tampa Bay to San Francisco and received coaching under Trestman in 1995. He gave the Chicago Sun-Times a terrific endorsement of the Bears' new leader.
Jay Cutler looks to improve in Trestman's quarterback-friendly offense.
