Bears hire Trestman as head coach

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears ended their search for a new coach early Wednesday morning when they made the decision to bring aboard the Montreal Alouettes' Marc Trestman as the franchise's 14th head coach.

A noted quarterback guru, Trestman has been out of the NFL for eight years before his stint in the CFL that eventually led to his succeeding Lovie Smith, who was fired by the Bears on Dec. 31.

The Bears scheduled a news conference for 10 a.m. CT on Thursday.
