Gary Lawless of TSN is reporting that the Toronto Argonauts have agreed in principle with Marc Trestman to be their head coach and Jim Popp to their GM.
According to Lawless, a formal announcement regarding these moves is expected to come tomorrow.
Trestman, 61, spent two years as the Chicago Bears head coach before he was fired after the 2014 season. The Ravens later hired him to run their defense in January of last year.
began his coaching career with the University of Miami back in 1981. He worked for a number of NFL teams including the Vikings, Buccaneers, Browns, 49ers, Lions, Cardinals, Raiders and Dolphins before eventually being hired as the Alouettes head coach in 2008.
After five seasons in Montreal, the Bears hired him as their head coach in 2013. Unfortunately, his time in Chicago didn’t go very well and he was fired after just two seasons. The Ravens hired him as their offensive coordinator in 2015 but elected to part ways with him in October of last year.
During his time with the Alouettes, Trestman won two Grey Cups and led them to a record of 59 and 31 (65.5 percent).
