Marc Trestman continues to fill up his coaching staff. His latest hire coached with him in the CFL and at NC State.
The Chicago Bears have hired former Montreal Alouettes offensive line coach Pat Meyer to be their assistant offensive line coach. He'll assist new offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron Kromar.
Like Trestman, Meyer has experience in American Football, and like GM Phil Emery, he has a background as a strength coach.
Not only did Trestman and Meyer work the 2012 season together in Montreal, but their paths crossed at North Carolina State. When Trestman was the offensive coordinator of the Wolfpack in 2005 and 2006, Meyer was in charge of the entire athletic department's strength programs, a position he held from 04-06.
Besides coaching the offensive line, Meyer also was offensive coordinator at Colorado State in 2010 and 2011.
As a player, he was an offensive lineman for Colorado State, he had a cup of coffee with the Arizona Cardinals in 1995, and he spent a season in the AFL.
