CHICAGO (AP) Longtime NFL assistant and current CFL coach Marc Trestman is denying a rumor that the Chicago Bears are set to hire him.
In an email to the Montreal Gazette on Friday, Trestman said he had not heard from the Bears, who fired coach Lovie Smith after the season.
Earlier, Fox analyst and former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson tweeted that it ``looks like 2 of my guys getting NFL jobs ... Chud Cleveland and my QB coach at U Trestman to Chicago.''
Nine hours later, Johnson tweeted: ``It LOOKS like 2 of my guys were getting NFL jobs not that Trestman got it!''
Trestman, who coaches the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, interviewed with the Bears this week. He was on Johnson's staff at Miami in the 1980s.
Tom Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, while Lamar Jackson has arguably had the best season of any signal caller in football this season.
While Brady certainly isn't known for using his legs, the Patriots quarterback challenged the speedy Jackson to a race on Thursday--but with a catch. Jackson had to wear roller blades while they ran on grass.
But Jackson didn't count out the 42-year-old veteran, saying, "he could probably win that race."
Remember, folks. We're talking about this guy.
Roller-blades or not, our money is still on Jackson.

As most people already know, Lamar "Action" Jackson is a humble guy. Despite his phenomenal season and the many records that he continues to break, he never boasts or brags about himself.
However, that's where Ravens running back Mark “Hype Man” Ingram II comes in.
Following the Ravens’ 42-21 victory over the New York Jets on Thursday night, Fox reporter Erin Andrews allowed Ingram to interview Jackson and let’s just say it was hilarious.
“Man, you broke Mike Vick’s rushing record, you’re the AFC North Champions for the second year in a row, how it feel, tell me how it feel?” Ingram asked.
Jackson answered with an expected response, “It feel good but you know we have a lot of season left to play and we got two more banners to hang up.”
Other players in the league should most definitely take notes. Ingram was natural, he had big energy and good pacing.
He could possibly have another career as a reporter.
