If Josh McCown got his way then his former Bears coach would join him as the offensive coordinator with the Buccaneers.
Marc Trestman was let go by the Bears on Monday after going 13-19 in two seasons with the team. By the end of Trestman stay in Chicago the defense was a complete mess and he had failed to get the best out of quarterback Jay Cutler.
Long viewed as a great offensive mind, Trestman is said to be on the radar of several teams but thus far nothing had linked him to anyone. Trestman was able to get a career year out of McCown in 2013 allowing the quarterback to sign a two-year deal worth $10 million to join the Buccaneers last offseason.
Following a awful season the Buccaners played their way into the No. 1 overall pick and figure to take either Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston.
The Buccaneers will need to find another option at running back but wide receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson combine with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins to provide a capable group of pass catchers.
Ironically Trestman replaced current Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith in Chicago.
