For those who may have not heard the name Marc Trestman, I don't blame you. After all, he has been coaching in the Canadian Football League since 2008.
But Trestman has garnered interest from NFL teams over the past couple of seasons, and now that he has a few years of head coaching experience, albeit in the CFL, there is no doubt he deserves consideration for an NFL head coaching position.
He won coach of the year in Montreal and also won the Grey Cup, the championship of the CFL. But what Trestman did before becoming Montreal's head coach is more impressive.
Trestman spent 19 years in the NFL, mostly as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. In Arizona, he developed Jake Plummer into one of the best quarterbacks in the league. In his first year with the Cardinals they won nine games after losing 12 the year before.
Before his playoff trip with Arizona, Trestman was in Detroit, where the Lions improved from 5-11 to 9-7 with a playoff appearance.
Trestman has worked under Bud Grant, Jon Gruden, Marty Schottenheimer, and Jimmy Johnson.
He was the quarterbacks coach that developed Bernie Kosar at the University of Miami, where Trestman was a national champion in 1983.
Trestman is the real deal, why wouldn't a team like Tampa Bay take a shot at him?
The Colts have already shown interest, and now it's time for the Bucs to do the same.
