(WSCR) The hiring of a CFL coach might be puzzling for some, but it’s hard to find a player who doesn’t have a raving review of new Bears head coach Marc Trestman.
That includes former Bears running back Garrett Wolfe, who played for Trestman this past season with the Montreal Alouettes.
Speaking with Mully and Hanley on 670 The Score Wednesday morning, Wolfe described Trestman as “very detailed”, adding that while he’s an offensive coach, “he’s not hands off on anything” and will be very involved with the defense.
“He’ll walk down on the defensive side and be involved in their practice too,” Wolfe said. “He’ll be very detailed and involved on both sides of the ball.”
Still, Trestman’s greatest impact figures to be on offense, where the Bears could use a boost. Wolfe, who played for Lovie Smith in Chicago, admitted that while Smith’s style was productive, “it didn’t get us over the hump.”

Wolfe believes Trestman’s style will do just that.
“He makes sound decisions,” the former Bears running back said. “He doesn’t make knee jerk reactions. It seems as if everything is calculated with him.”
