Chicago Bears fans all remember Marc Trestman. The highly-touted Canadian Football League coach took over as their the Bears’ head coach in 2013. He was gone two years later.
Trestman, along with former general manager Phil Emery, singlehandedly destroyed the Chicago Bears franchise. Despite the new regime’s efforts, Chicago hasn’t been the same since. It’s part of the reason why they’re picking third in this year’s NFL Draft.
After the Bears fired Trestman, he was hired by the Baltimore Ravens to become their offensive coordinator. He stayed around for a year and a half before getting canned from that job, too. Now, it appears that he may be returning back to Canada.

Arash Madani of Sportsnet.ca reported on Friday that Trestman will likely become the head coach of the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. The Argonauts, or the “Argos”, are coming off of a 5-13 season, so he has his work cut out for him.
This year would mark Trestman’s first season in the CFL since 2012. He led the Montreal Alouettes to the Grey Cup twice in his five seasons there. The Alouettes also made the playoffs in every season with him at the helm. He has certainly proven to be a winning coach at the CFL level.
Trestman would be a great addition for the Argonauts. However, their fans can only hope that he doesn’t ruin their franchise like he did to the Bears.
