He entered football coaching at the University of Miami in 1981 as a volunteer coach. In 1983 he was named quarterbacks coach. That year quarterback Bernie Kosar passed for 2,329 yards and Miami won the national championship. The next year Kosar completed 262 passes for 3,642 yards, both school records.

Trestman then moved to the National Football League and coached the running backs with the Minnesota Vikings in 1985 and 1986. He became quarterbacks coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1987 then held the same position with the Cleveland Browns in 1988. In Cleveland he again coached Kosar and the team finished 10-6 and made the playoffs. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1989. That year Kosar passed for 3,533 yards and 18 TDs, wide receiver Webster Slaughter had a franchise record 1,236 receiving yards, and the Browns made it to the AFC Championship game.

In 1990, Trestman returned to Minnesota as quarterbacks coach for the Vikings. He spent two years there and then left coaching for three years.

He returned to the NFL in 1995 as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator with San Francisco, where he served in that capacity through 1996. The first year he was there the 49ers led the NFL with 457 points scored, 644 pass attempts and 4,779 passing yards.

Trestman moved to the Detroit Lions and quarterbacks coach in 1997. That year Lion's quarterback Scott Mitchell passed for 3,484 yards, second most in team history.

In 1998 he was with the Arizona Cardinals as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. That year quarterback Jake Plummer threw for 3,737 yards, and the Cardinals made the playoffs for the first time since 1982 and won their first post season game in 51 years.

He next went to the Oakland Raiders in 2001 as the quarterbacks coach. In 2002 he was promoted to offensive coordinator and the Raiders led the NFL in total offense with 389.8 yards per game and passing yards with 279.7 per game. That Raider team made it to the Super Bowl but lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Trestman spent the 2004 season with the Miami Dolphins and in 2005 he returned to college football as the North Carolina State Wolfpack offensive coordinator where he was known for being a conservative play-caller.

On December 18, 2007, Trestman was confirmed as the head coach for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. The Alouettes narrowly lost 22-14 to the Calgary Stampeders in the 2008 Grey Cup championship game. At the conclusion of the season, he was nominated for the CFL's Annis Stukus Award as the league's top coach, with Calgary's John Hufnagel winning. On March 5th 2010, Trestman won the Coach of the year award.

In 2009, Trestman led the Alouettes to the Grey Cup, winning with a thrilling field goal with no time left on the clock.After the season,it was announced that he was signed through the 2012 season as the head coach.

Trestman worked with André Woodson leading up to the 2008 NFL Draft in an attempt to help improve Woodson's throwing mechanics and draft stock.[2]

In September, 2010, former Minnesota Gophers quarterback and NFL Super Bowl Champion coach Tony Dungy was asked whether he'd read an article by a Minnesota sports writer regarding rumors about Dungy becoming the Gophers' next coach. He replied: "I have not and you can tell whoever wrote that story that they need to focus on Marc Trestman."[3]

List of successful NFL coordinators/coaches that came from the CFL:

if he comes to the panthers he's going to be a coordinator, not a head coach, IF people want to risk the number one pick on Cam Newton, why not risk hiring Trestman???

I just can't see dropping the no. one pick on a project & McNabb is done. David Garrard is a better fit.

i could see it if Richardson thinks that Newton will have a Vick-type potential, as for Garrard, that wont happen, dont see the Jaguars trading or releasing him, dont see Carolina asking about him.

Bill Callahan was in charge of the offense in 2002. Don't know much about Trestman, but I do know that's a fact. Think of how Belichick has done it for years in New England.

if he's a good offensive coach, sure, and if they do keep Clausen and Moore , he's the perfect coach to fix all Clausen's and Moore's issues.


Fixed.

He seems to have had great success wherever he goes. But, I'm noticing there might be a pattern of restlessness.

I don't see what people see in him to want him? what is it people see in him that I don't? He has coached for some good team and has shown he can coach up Qbs but other than that what else has he shown? Qb coach maybe, Offensive coordinator? no thanks!

A dude from the CFL to be our new OC? Sounds just like something our mediocre asses would do.

he was rich gannon's qb coach in oakland under gruden. he was the OC the year they went to the superbowl.



Oakland's offense was number one that year. If he can bring that here to Carolina, he would be another great hire.
