Brandon Marshall on Marc Trestman: 'I love the hire'

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was one of the first Chicago Bears players to chime in on the late-night hiring of new coach Marc Trestman.

Known for his creative approach to offense, Trestman brings with him a reputation for turning around quarterbacks and transforming sluggish attacks into aggressive affairs that press defenses through the air. Marshall is a fan of the shift.

Bold move for Bears
The Bears hope that hiring Marc Trestman out of the CFL proves to be the savvy call Gregg Rosenthal believes it is. More ...

"I absolutely love the hire," Marshall told the Chicago Sun-Times, "and the few guys I've talked to love it, too.

"Hearing from guys who have played for him and been around him, he's a guy that's innovative."

It's a challenge to imagine a high-octane offense in Chicago after years of troubled line play and inconsistency. Trestman brings that promise. He's a name few spoke of 30 days ago, but his track record is proven.

Trestman's former quarterbacks -- including a few Hall of Famers -- vouch for him, and it appears Marshall is on board, too.
