Marc Trestman was once Ozzie Newsome's boss. Now that Trestman has signed on to be Baltimore's offensive coordinator, the roles are a bit reversed.
Newsome, as everyone knows, was one of the better tight ends to ever play the game. Newsome played his entire career for the Browns, lasting from 1978 through 1990. During two of his final three years with Cleveland, Newsome played under Trestman, who was the Browns offensive coordinator in 1988 and 1989. The Browns reached the postseason in both of those years, making it to the AFC Championship game in 1989.
Now, the two are working for the same organization, which brings back a lot of memories for Trestman.
"I’m really excited about that," Trestman said on a conference call this week. "It’s kind of nostalgic to think it has been that long. It seems like yesterday, and I’m sure Ozzie feels the same way. But I learned a lot from Ozzie. As a player he was a championship caliber player, a Hall of Fame player, certainly, and it’s kind of nostalgic to think that I’ll be going to work in the same building."
