CHICAGO -- One of pro football's legacy franchises is making news.

The Chicago Bears are giving Marc Trestman his first shot as an NFL head coach.

A longtime NFL assistant, Trestman spent the past five seasons as head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, winning two Canadian Football League championships.

The Bears hope he can get the most out of quarterback Jay Cutler and help them reach the postseason on a consistent basis. Smith was let go after Chicago missed the playoffs for the fifth time in six years.
