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.

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
