Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman brings a pair of familiar faces to his staff that he worked with previously in Montreal.

The Chicago Bears hired another coach from the Montreal Alouettes today, when they added Andy Bischoff to Marc Trestman's coaching staff. He joins the staff as the tight ends coach.

Bischoff started with Trestman when the Alouettes hired him in 2008. He started out as their running backs & offensive quality control coach, until being promoted to his latest position that carried the impressive title of Special Teams Coordinator, Running Backs Coach and Administrative Assistant to the Head Coach.

How'd you like to have that on your business card?

Before you become concerned that Bischoff only has experience with the bigger field and 12 men per side CFL, he did coach 15 years in American football. From 1993 - 2007 he coached at Cretin-Derham Hall High School in Minnesota. While there his coaching responsibilities went from offensive line coach, to run game coordinator, to co-offensive coordinator, to Assistant Head Coach & Offensive Coordinator.

Coming along with Bischoff is Michael Sinclair as an assistant defensive line coach. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and played eleven seasons in the NFL, and worked with Trestman in Montreal. Prior to joining the Bears, he was the assistant head coach and defensive line coach for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL.
