Brian Billick says Marc Trestman was a “brilliant choice” for Bears
Former Super Bowl champion head coach Brian Billick has an illustrious offensive background, and he even was in play on the coaching carousel this offseason.
“Marc Trestman was a brilliant choice by the Chicago Bears,” Billick said on NFL Network’s “First on the Field.” “Trestman has a certain intellect about him in the way that he coaches and the way he relates to players. That will resonate with Jay Cutler, and he will find a kindred spirit with Trestman.”
Billick was the offensive coordinator of one of the great unit’s in NFL history, the 1998 Minnesota Vikings. He then had a successful tenure as the Baltimore Ravens head coach, leading them to Super Bowl XXXV.
A colorful and outspoken analyst, Billick was interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles vacancy, which eventually went to Oregon’s Chip Kelly.
