I actually like this move by Cleveland, Trestman is a fine coach

ESPN Cleveland confirms the Browns will interview Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman in Chicago on Monday.

The meeting takes place in the Windy City because the Bears are also interviewing Trestman. Montreal is 64-34 in Trestman's five seasons, including two Grey Cup victories. A West Coast offense devotee, Trestman has an impressive track record of success as a coordinator and play-caller.

Maybe he's gotten better in Montreal, but I think he was pretty awful as a playcaller for the 49ers. I wouldn't touch him.

sure about that? from wiki:

In 1990, Trestman returned to Minnesota as quarterbacks coach for the Vikings. He spent two years there and then left coaching for three years.
He returned to the NFL in 1995 as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator with San Francisco, where he served in that capacity through 1996. The first year he was there the 49ers led the NFL with 457 points scored, 644 pass attempts and 4,779 passing yards.
Trestman joined the Detroit Lions as quarterbacks coach in 1997. That year Lion's quarterback Scott Mitchell passed for 3,484 yards, second most in team history.
In 1998 he was with the Arizona Cardinals as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. That year quarterback Jake Plummer threw for 3,737 yards, and the Cardinals made the playoffs for the first time since 1982 and won their first post season game in 51 years.
He next went to the Oakland Raiders in 2001 as the quarterbacks coach. In 2002 he was promoted to offensive coordinator and the Raiders led the NFL in total offense with 389.8 yards per game and passing yards with 279.7 per game. Under Trestman's guidance, Raiders QB Rich Gannon won the 2002 NFL MVP award as the Raiders reached Super Bowl XXXVII, losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Trestman spent the 2004 season with the Miami Dolphins before returning to the college ranks.


if i were a team looking for an offensive minded coach, trestman would be my hire. the guy knows offense and he knows QBs, period.

Hes been around, he knows the games and im with GDMK.

He could fail at anything - as many new HCs do and will in the NFL - but one things for sure, he will certainly give any team struggling offensively a good shot at improving their passing attack.

I apologize. Every thread I enter, I horribly derail off-topic. I suck.

Mostly to discourage behavior like mine. And to drop the banhammer.
