Marc Trestman has taken two of his former Alouettes assistants with him to the Chicago Bears.
The team announced Friday that Montreal’s tight ends coach Andy Bischoff and former assistant defensive line coach Michael Sinclair would join Trestman in Chicago. Sinclair joined the Roughriders as assistant head coach and defensive line coach last month only to resign on Friday.

Sinclair was a three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman with the Seahawks in the 1990s and played 11 seasons with Seattle and the Philadelphia Eagles. He was Montreal’s defensive line coach from 2008 to 2012.
Bischoff spent the past five seasons as the Alouettes’ running backs coach and was also their special teams co-ordinator from 2010 to 2012.
