One of the brightest offensive minds in the NFL, former Bears head coach Marc Trestman led the team to over 27 points per game in 2013.

Rex Ryan, the bombastic former head coach of the New York Jets reportedly wants to team up with another recently-fired head coach at his next head coaching job.
According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, a source informed of Ryan’s plans says the former New York Jets head coach wants to team up with former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman, and the feeling appears to be mutual.
During his six-year tenure with the New York Jets, Rex Ryan was strongly criticized for his inability to coach an offense. However, he is considered one of the best defensive minds in the NFL today, and none of his Jets teams ever finished worse than 11th in yards allowed. In his first two years with the Jets, Rex Ryan led the team to back-to-back AFC Championship games. He has more playoff wins than any coach in Jets history.
Trestman in his first year with the Bears in 2013 coached the offense to a league 2nd-best 445 points (only the NFL-record setting Denver Broncos had more) – which was also the second highest points scored in a season in Bears history. But a collapse in 2014 resulted in a 5-11 record.
Ryan and Trestman were both fired on Black Monday after two straight years missing the playoffs.
Unlike Trestman, however, Rex Ryan has been a highly sought-after coaching candidate among several teams that are seeking a new one. He is considered a final candidate for the vacant Atlanta Falcons job and has also been connected to the vacant San Francisco 49ers job.
