Report: Chicago Bears 'likely' to fire head coach Marc Trestman

The Marc Trestman era of Chicago Bears football may be more of a cup of coffee if this next report proves true.

Here's Mike Florio of NBC's Pro Football Talk with the report:

According to Dan Bernstein of WSCR in Chicago, Bears ownership met in the wake of Monday night’s 31-15 home loss to the Saints. Per Bernstein, the team “likely” will fold the tents on the Trestman regime. It’s not known whether the Bears also will be parting ways with the man who hired Trestman, G.M. Phil Emery.

Trestman, the former head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, was tabbed by GM Phil Emery as the man to help starting quarterback Jay Cutler to elite status.

However, after 14 games of what has been a beyond-frustrating 2014 campaign for players, executives, coaches, and fans alike, it appears the end is near for the Trestman experiment in the Windy City.

In addition, Emery's job may also be on the line as a team that appeared talented enough on paper to contend for an NFC North title at the beginning of the season as sputtered to a 5-9 record with two games to play.

Stay tuned.
