Sounds like it's Trestman. Bringing his brand of hard-nosed French Canadian football or whatever to the NFC North. I'd still prefer Bevell who I think will fail as an NFL head coach given the opportunity, as opposed to Trestman where it's just an assumption.

ESPN.com has the story too.

Trestman will bring in former Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, a league source told ESPN
This means Tice is out, which is for the best. I don't think he really got anyone's attention.
The Bears are thinking outside of the box, which is, well...different for them. At least Trestman's got some credentials:

17 years in the NFL...

-Reached Super Bowl XXXVII as Offensive Coordinator/QB coach of the Oakland Raiders
-Reached two AFC Championship games as Offensive Coordinator/QB coach of the Oakland Raiders (2002) & Cleveland Browns (1989)
-Twice coordinated the #1 passing offense in NFL (49ers in 1995, Raiders in 2002)
-13 Playoff appearances coaching with the Browns (Bernie Kosar), 49ers (Steve Young), Cardinals (Jake Plummer), Lions (Scott Mitchell) & Raiders (Rich Gannon)
-Coached NFLís Most Valuable Player in 2002 (QB Rich Gannon)
-Served as Offensive Coordinator during Jerry Rice's record-setting season of 1,848 yards and 15 TDs in 1995
-Guided 49ers to the #1 and #2 ranked passing offenses in the NFL as Offensive Coordinator in 1995 and 1996
-Directed the Cardinals offense to their 1st playoff victory in 51 years

He's also worked with both Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell before they entered the NFL so the guy's clearly not the newbie with only CFL experience that some clueless fans are painting him out to be.
