Eric Bieniemy gets an upgraded job title with a new team
Eric Bieniemy has been with the Kansas City Chiefs as their offensive coordinator since the 2018 season. The Chiefs have had much success in that time. He’s been a part of Four AFC Championship Game appearances, three Super Bowl appearances, and two Super Bowl wins. Now he’ll take a different path with a new title.
Reports came out Friday morning Bieniemy was expected to take the offensive coordinator job with the Washington Commanders. According to Tom Pelissero with the NFL Network, Bieniemy will become the Commanders assistant head coach and offensive coordinator. Pelissero is sourcing the report from Bieniemy’s agent, Jason Fletcher. Bienemy wanted more control in his next job and appreciated the promoted title.

The Chiefs were planning for a potential shake-up to occur at the offensive coordinator position. Head coach Andy Reid appeared to campaign for Eric Bieniemy to get looks at being a head coach after the Super Bowl. Former Chiefs offensive coordinator and current Chiefs quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy is considered a top choice to take over Bieniemy.
Bieniemy was the Chiefs’ replacement for Nagy in 2018 when Nagy went to Chicago to be the Bears’ head coach.
