It wasn't a big surprise that Marc Trestman was ready for the moment — clear, precise and on point from start to finish as he read off notes on index cards during his introductory news conference Thursday at Halas Hall. The Bears' new coach is famously detailed and well-prepared.

''I call him Coach Cerebral,'' said former North Carolina State coach Chuck Amato, who hired Trestman as his offensive coordinator in 2005. ''When he sent me his résumé, it was like a book. It must have been 30 pages.''
