First, the Indianapolis Colts came calling for Alouettes general manager Jim Popp. Now it appears it's Marc Trestman's turn.

According to ESPN's John Clayton, Trestman had his first interview with the Colts for their vacant head coaching position on the weekend.

Trestman is at the Senior Bowl in Alabama interviewing candidates for the vacant defensive co-ordinator's position with the Alouettes. Last week, Tim Tibesar accepted a coaching position with Purdue in the NCAA.

The Colts fired general manager Bill Polian earlier this month while head coach Jim Caldwell was relieved of his duties last week.

Trestman has one year left on his deal with Montreal and so any potential discussions between he and the Colts would first require the Als permission.

In four seasons with the Alouettes, Trestman has guided the team to three Grey Cup appearances and two titles.

The Alouettes head coach could be a logical fit in Indianapolis, since Trestman spends his off-season mentoring young quarterbacks coming out of college. The Colts - who possess the first overall pick in this year's NFL Draft - are expected to take Stanford pivot Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick.
