Trestman To Be Named Head Coach/GM of XFL Tampa Bay Franchise

According to the Tampa Bay Times, former NFL head coach Marc Trestman will be the Head Coach/GM of the XFL Tampa Bay XFL franchise.

A spokesperson for the XFL declined to comment on this story.

Trestman, 63, most recently coached for Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. He won consecutive Grey Cup championships as head coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL in 2009 and 2010. His only stint in the NFL as Head Coach was with the Chicago Bears for two seasons.

Trestman later became the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens one season.

Trestman Background

Trestman was a quarterback at the University of Minnesota and a back up to Tony Dungy. His first coaching job came in 1983 at the University of Miami. He was quarterbacks coach for Bernie Kosar, and the Hurricanes won the national championship that year.

Marc Trestman was a name not mentioned anywhere, yet a great pick up. He had great success in the CFL, let’s hope this translates well in the XFL. We will have full coverage of the press conference on March 5th at 11 am (ET)
