The Chicago Bears want to talk to Marc Trestman about their vacant head coaching job.

The NFL Network reported Saturday that the Bears will interview Trestman, the head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, for their top coaching position. Chicago fired Lovie Smith at season's end after missing the playoffs despite posting a 10-6 record.

Trestman has spent the last five seasons with Montreal, leading the club to Grey Cup titles in 2009 and 2010. The 56-year-old Minneapolis native has a 59-31 regular-season record and led the Alouettes to first place in the East Division four times.

Under Trestman, the Alouettes have advanced to the East Division final four times and are 5-3 in the post-season.

Trestman remains under contract with Montreal but is believed to have an escape clause in his CFL deal that would allow him to take a job south of the border.

Trestman also has a history with Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler and backup Jason Campbell. He worked with both prior to them being selected in the first-round of the NFL draft -- Campbell went to Washington in 2005 out of Auburn, Cutler to Denver in 2006 out of Vanderbilt.

According to a report from Yahoo's Jason Cole, the Cleveland Browns also want to talk to Trestman about their vacant head coaching position.
