Trestman, Bears off to promising startLAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - As much as Marc Trestman credited the players and staff for the Chicago Bears' season-opening win over the Cincinnati Bengals, he couldn't help but acknowledge his own personal satisfaction.
After all, it was his first game as a head coach in the league.
It came after a long run as an NFL and college assistant before spending the past five seasons in Canada, leading the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. And in his debut, the Bears took out a team many expect to contend in the AFC.
Trestman says the day was about "the Bears and the city of Chicago and the fans" while acknowledging he had "a chance to rejoice."
