One-time head coach of the Chicago Bears won his third championship over the weekend and also received Coach of the Year honors.


Let's face it, the Bears have struggled for several years. They can't seem to make the right decisions.

One of their biggest blunders was hiring Marc Trestman as their head coach. He set the team back many years.

After that dumpster fire, I would've been really surprised if he ever got another chance to lead a football team.

Well, I was wrong.

Sunday night I was enjoying some TV, when I got a text from Rockford IceHogs Goalie, Jeff Glass. He told me to turn on ESPN2.

What did I flip the channel to? It was the Grey Cup which is the CFL version of the Super Bowl.

Who did I see as one of the coaches? Former Chicago Bears head coach, Marc Trestman. He was hired earlier this year by the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

According to,

"In his first full season back in the Canadian Football League as head coach, he led Toronto to victory in the 105th Grey Cup championship." 

"He also earn Coach of the Year honors for the league."

Trestman has a history in the CFL. He previously coached the Montreal Alouettes where he won two Grey Cups.

I guess some guys are made to coach in the NFL, others find success in the college ranks, and he has done well in Canada.

Maybe Marc can put in a good word for John Fox after he loses the Bears gig.
