Marc Trestman, Bears Off To Promising Start This Season
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Marc Trestman didn't hide it.
As much as he credited the players and staff for the Chicago Bears' season-opening win over the Cincinnati Bengals, he couldn't help but acknowledge his own personal satisfaction. After all, it was his first game as a head coach in the league.
It came after a long run as an NFL and college assistant before spending the past five seasons in Canada, leading the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. And in his debut, the Bears took out a team many expect to contend in the AFC.
Even better, his 85-year-old father was on hand for it.
"I was glad he was there to see the day, but that wasn't what the day was about," Trestman said Monday. "The day was about the Bears and the city of Chicago and the fans. We had a chance to rejoice, no doubt about it. I'm not going to step aside and say we didn't but it wasn't the most important part of the day."
The most important part was what happened on the field, and for the Bears it was a promising start.
