NFL: Rumors surrounding Trestman becoming Bears coach dismissed

A big name who really could excite Bears fans became a player in the search for Lovie Smith’s replacement Friday.

But Jimmy Johnson is not going to be the next coach of the Bears. Instead, he indicated he might have some inside information on who will be.

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

“Chud” is Rob Chudzinski, who was named the Browns’ coach Friday. Trestman is Marc Trestman, the Montreal Alouettes coach who interviewed with Bears general manager Phil Emery for 8 hours earlier this week.

The only problem with what Johnson tweeted is the Bears seemingly are not close to naming a head coach. In fact, Emery still has initial interviews scheduled.

Saturday, he is set to meet with Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Sunday, he is supposed to interview Colts offensive coordinator and coach of the year candidate Bruce Arians.

He was scheduled to talk with Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison on Friday.

Emery is expected to schedule a second round for the finalists.

“I have not heard from the Bears and have responded in that manner on multiple levels,” Trestman wrote in an email to the Montreal Gazette.

Trestman won back to back Grey Cup championships for the Alouettes in 2009-10. He was a longtime NFL assistant and worked with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to help prepare him for the 2006 draft. He’s been out of the league since 2004.
