Trestman's First NFL Head Coaching Gig Begins SundayLAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Marc Trestman makes his debut as an NFL coach when the Chicago Bears host the Cincinnati Bengals, and to say he's come a long way is no exaggeration.
After years as an assistant in the league and on the college level before heading to the CFL, Trestman finally has his opportunity. Just don't expect him to get all sentimental when he walks into Soldier Field on Sunday.
Trestman says he expects it to be "all business" for him, although he is "very appreciative" of the opportunity he as.
The Bears hired Trestman to replace the fired Lovie Smith, hoping he could spark their offense and get the most out of quarterback Jay Cutler.
