The Chicago Bears head coaching search is finally down to two finalists. The last men standing for the Bears opening are Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman.

While there are still two men remaining, all signs point towards Trestman being the choice in Chicago and he is considered by many as the favorite to land the job.

Per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Trestman spent all day at Halas Hall speaking with Bears officials.

It all started when Jimmy Johnson tweeted that Trestman would land the Bears gig and now Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune is reporting that he hears Trestman is the “heavy favorite” to be named the head coach in Chicago. If the news is true, it will be an excellent hire for the Bears.

Trestman can work wonders with quarterbacks and he would help take Jay Cutler to the next level.

Just how much success has Trestman had with quarterbacks in the past? Well, he is the man that convinced some guy named Russell Wilson to give up baseball and join the North Carolina State football team. We all know how that worked out for Wilson and no one knows better than Trestman’s fellow coaching finalist Darrell Bevell.

Trestman may not be a household name among NFL fans, but he is a brilliant mind that will quickly become loved by the Chicago fans.

      Wow, that’s a deep argument. Let me counter with “Phil Emery knows more about football than you. So whoever he picks, YES.”
