Minnesota Vikings v Chicago Bears
CHICAGO (CBS) — One of the many priorities for new Bears coach Marc Trestman will be to connect and develop Jay Cutler.

Trestman told WBBM Newsradio’s Josh Liss that he “felt a connection” with Cutler during one of this interviews for the job.

“There were two guys in the room who wanted to help the Chicago Bears to be a better football team,” he said. “That was the real connection.”

After the news conference on day one, which Trestman called a “proud day” for his family, the new field boss said he got down to work.

“We worked through the afternoon and into the evening and finished strong,” he said.

Trestman acknowledged that there is a “sense of urgency” in finding key members of his coaching staff–including a new defensive coordinator.
