TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Argonauts fired head coach Marc Trestman on Saturday, one day after capping a league-worst 4-14 season with a 24-9 loss to Ottawa.

Bill Manning, president of the Canadian Football League team, said a search for a new coach would begin immediately.

Trestman was 15-23 in his two seasons with the Argonauts, who won the Grey Cup last year. This season went awry early when veteran quarterback Ricky Ray sustained a season-ending neck injury during a Week 2 loss to Calgary.

Trestman is a former head coach of Montreal in the CFL and the NFL's Chicago Bears, where he was 13-19 over two seasons.
