TRESTMAN BACK FOR MORE
ESPN, citing sources, reported the Bears will conduct a second interview with Trestman this week, head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.
Seattle offensive co-ordinator Darrell Bevell will also interview a second time meaning the shortlist is down to two.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bevell and defensive co-ordinator Gus Bradley were "heading toward second interviews." Bradley is in the running for the Philadelphia Eagles' job.
Bevell just finished his second season as Seattle's offensive co-ordinator and drew high praise for his work with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. He also served as Minnesota's co-ordinator from 2006-10 and was an assistant in Green Bay before that, working with Brett Favre.
The Bears, who declined comment, are looking to replace the fired Lovie Smith.
