Bears hire Marc Trestman, Mark Sullivan stays with Buccaneers

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bears have ended their coaching search and have ended up with Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman as their new leader. This leaves the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles without a head coach. For now, this means Mike Sullivan is staying with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, although he could always emerge as a candidate for one of the other teams.

Sullivan was one of approximately 15,000 coaches invited by the Chicago Bears for an interview, but he was not among the finalists for the job. It appears the Bucs will have Sullivan for another year, which should help Josh Freeman improve within the offense. And if he doesn't, they'll get to start over once again in 2014. Now there's something to look forward to!

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers do have three openings on their coaching staff and they need to find a new receivers coach, quarterbacks coach and secondary coach.
