MARC TRESTMAN NAMED HEAD COACH IN TAMPA BAY
Marc Trestman, a former head coach in the NFL and CFL, where he was two-time Coach of the Year, has been named the headcoach and general manager of the new XFL team in Tampa Bay.
Over his 35-year career, Trestman has served in a variety of positions at the major college and pro levels, including headcoach with the Montreal Alouettes, Chicago Bears and Toronto Argonauts. He won the CFL’s Grey Cup three times, twice leading the Alouettes (2009 and 2010) and once guiding the Argonauts (2017) to championships.
Trestman joined the NFL’s coaching ranks in 1985 as the Minnesota Vikings running backs coach. In 1987, he became the quarterbacks coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1987), and later held that position with Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions. He served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders. Trestman’s NFL coaching career also includes a season as assistant head coach for the Miami Dolphins, and two seasons as offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens.
In his rookie year as head coach of the Bears the team finished second in the league in scoring, fifth in offensive yardage, and broke team records in total yards, passing yards, passing touchdowns and first downs made.
Trestman will be making a return to coaching in Tampa Bay to build the new XFL team, leveraging his three decades of coaching experience in the NFL, CFL and at the college level. Trestman is an offensive-minded coach whose style will fit the up-tempo, fast-paced game we will deliver to fans when the XFL launches on February 8, 2020.
