Grey Cup Guru
There are Jewish and Detroit Lions links
to the winner of the Canadian Football
League's 97th Grey Cup game, played last
month in Saskatechewan.
Montreal coach Marc Trestman, who
led the Alouettes to a 29-28 victory over
Saskatchewan's Roughriders, is Jewish.
Trestman was a member of the Lions'
coaching staff in 1997. He was hired
by Coach Bobby Ross to be the teams
quarterbacks coach and, thanks in large
part to Trestman's guidance, QB Scott
Mitchell passed for 3,484 yards, the sec-
ond-highest total in team history.
After one season with the Lions, he
left the club to become the Arizona
Cardinals' offensive coordinator.
