Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith (like many of us) is stunned Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy continues to be overlooked in head coaching searches.
Smith told Yahoo Sports’ Terez Paylor it’s “ridiculous” a team hasn’t hired Bieniemy and recounted his experience with the 51-year-old in Kansas City:
“I think it’s ridiculous that he hasn’t been hired yet,” Smith said. “I know the interview process is weird with a team that is still in [the playoffs], but regardless, I don’t see how you can excuse it.”
Bieniemy was the Chiefs’ running backs coach for Smith’s last four seasons in Kansas City. In 2018, he was promoted to the offensive coordinator role where he has overseen one of the NFL’s most dynamic offenses.
