NFL World Reacts to Eric Bieniemy Announcement

January 30, 2023

Although Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bienimi has been a head-coaching candidate in nearly every coaching cycle over the past five years, he has not received any during this cycle. Interview request. An interesting new report may explain why.

Head coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy of the Kansas City Chiefs look on during the second quarter against the Atlanta Falcons at Arrowhead Stadium on December 27, 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Bieniemy was asked to interview for the offensive coordinator position with the Washington Commanders. It’s unclear if Bieniemy would accept such a request, as it would be a lateral move rather than a promotion.

Over the past few years, Bieneimy has interviewed for nearly every NFL team. Bieniemy may be looking for more opportunities to prove he can be a great coach without working with Andy Reid’s all-time greatest head coach or Patrick Mahomes’ all-time greatest QB.

NFL fans seem to have a hard time believing that Bieniemy is open to such a lateral move. But Commander Washington fans couldn’t be happier with the possibility.

Eric Bieniemy has been the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator since 2018, during which time the Chiefs’ offense finished no lower than sixth in a single season. The Chiefs also haven’t missed a single AFC Championship game under his leadership.

There could be a variety of reasons for Biniemi’s inability to land the head coaching job, ranging from his arrest record to systemic issues with the league’s recruiting practices.

But the end result is the same: Eric Bieniemy is not the head coach, and on paper, he won’t be in 2023.

Will Bieniemy move to Washington, or stay in Kansas City?
