As Buffalo Bills interim coach Perry Fewell gets his commandments in order, the search for the next poor bastard head man is on, and one of the names being tossed about is that of Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman. Yep, the Bills are looking at the CFL for potentially picking their next head coach.
Trestman, 53 – who has served on past NFL coaching staffs for the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins – led Montreal to the Grey Cup final in his rookie CFL season a year ago. –Globe and Mail.
Trestman also lead the Als to a CFL-best 15-3 record this season; they’ll play in their conference final on Sunday. But even if Trestman was considering the job, there’s no guarantee that Montreal would let him go. Montreal GM Jim Popp told The Canadian Press, “[B]ottom line, he’s under contract to our team.” Oh well, there’s always af2.
