Trestman a Better Hire Than Arians and Other AFC South Must-Reads
Posted By Nate Dunlevy On January 17, 2013 @ 8:05 am In Colts News | No Comments
Last year, the Colts passed on Marc Trestman in favor of Bruce Arians as their offensive coordinator. Trestman had interviewed for the head coaching job, and many thought he would make an outstanding coordinator.
Instead, they went with Bruce Arians, who is now a coach of the year candidate.
The Bears have picked Trestman to be their new head coach according to the Associated Press , and they passed on Arians to do it.
Like the Colts, the Bears are now looking to build around their quarterback, and Trestman is the perfect hire for it. He’s got an impeccable NFL  offensive resume and plenty of head coaching experience in Canada.
While Arians has been great, his tactics are endlessly controversial. From the beating his quarterbacks take to the lack of passes to the running backs, it seems like fans are always dissatisfied with his play-calling.
Given the state of the Chicago offensive line, perhaps Arians‘ offense wouldn’t have been a good fit. The Bears made a wise choice in Trestman, and the Colts could well benefit from having continuity in their young offense.
That is, of course, unless the Cardinals  hire Arians away.
