The University of Miami's football program has narrowed its search down for a new head coach, which includes Montreal Alouettes bench boss Marc Trestman, according to a report.

The Miami Herald says Trestman is one of three candidates, along with Temple University coach Al Golden and Connecticut coach Randy Edsall, in the running.

Trestman, coming off back-to-back Grey Cup wins over the Saskatchewan Roughriders, was also rumoured for the vacant coaching job at his alma mater, the University of Minnesota. The Golden Gophers have since hired Jerry Kill for the position.

A decision is expected in the next few days, according to the paper.

Trestman, 54, has coached the Als to a 38-16 record after being hired by the club in Dec. 2007. He is signed through the 2012 season.

The native of Minneapolis, Minn., held various jobs in college football and the NFL between 1981 and 2006, including offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and running backs coach.
