Marc Trestman signs a contract extension with the Montreal Alouettes but will he be here for another four years?

Yesterday afternoon, the Montreal Alouettes had finally announced a contract extension for head coach Marc Trestman.

Ever since the 2008 season, Trestman's name has been linked to various coaching openings in the NFL and NCAA. In-fact, from what I was told, Trestman was one of the final candidates for the University of Minnesota job that eventually went to Jerry Kill.

Even though Trestman has inked a four year extension, not many details were revealed to the assembled Montreal media on the language of the contract. However, one question that could be an issue is there a window of opportunity for Trestman to explore NFL or NCAA opportunities?

Moreover, RDS football insider Didier Ormejuste illustrated in his Trestman news piece, that there is definite NFL interest for his services as it was verified by three of the biggest NFL insiders.

For now the storm has calmed down, but it could be revived at the end of the season if the Alouettes happen to make another Grey Cup appearance and potentially win a third title in four seasons.

Contrary to popular belief that Trestman won't leave and will honour his contract. Past names of Marv Levy, Bob Price, and Charlie Taaffe have left for better opportunities down south.

Alouettes management, and their fans can rejoice that they have their head coach locked up for four more years. The question that comes up, will Trestman still be in-charge by the time his contract ends?
