The Chicago Bears plan to interview Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman for their head coaching job, the NFL Network reported Saturday.
ESPN reported that the Canadian Football League coach will interview with the Bears on Monday.
Trestman is signed with the Alouettes through 2016, but the team may let him out of the contract.
A source with the Alouettes told ESPN that the team's ownership is "usually pretty good about stuff like that ... although Marc just signed a new extension this year. So I don't know if that might hold things up."
The Alouettes went 11-7 last season. Trestman has coached them to three Grey Cup games in five years, including winning the championship in 2009 and '10 and was the CFL's Coach of the Year in 2009.
Trestman has been an offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders and worked as a consultant for the New Orleans Saints. He has also been an assistant with the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, University of Miami and North Carolina State.
Bears general manager Phil Emery reportedly met with Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis on Saturday in Dallas and is meeting in Denver with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Sunday.
The Bears have already interviewed Atlanta Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan and Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr., to replace the recently fired Lovie Smith. They also asked permission to interview Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements and Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.
