Marc Trestman wins CFL Coach of Year Award

Trestman was named the CFL’s coach of the year at a luncheon Friday.

Trestman secured the honour ahead of Marcel Bellefeuille of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ken Miller of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in voting conducted by the Football Reporters of Canada.

Trestman, a finalist for the award last year, guided Montreal to a CFL-best 15-3 record. The Alouettes capped their season with a thrilling 28-27 win over Saskatchewan in the Grey Cup.
Montreal was 9-0 at home under Trestman and scored over 600 points for the second straight year.

Trestman has led Montreal to a 26-10-0 regular-season record during his two seasons with the CFL club. The Alouettes also reached the 2009 Grey Cup final before losing to the Calgary Stampeders.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
