There’s been a lot of chatter over the fact that Eric Bieniemy has yet to be offered a head coaching job in the NFL despite doing a remarkable job as the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bieniemy has bee the Chiefs OC since 2018 and following Sunday’s 38-35 win in Super Bowl LVII, the topic has been brought back up after the losing coordinators for the Eagles (Shane Steichen and Johnathan Gannon) both got head-coaching jobs immediately after the game.
There’s many reasons why Bieniemy isn’t a head coach yet in the NFL but according to Stephen A Smith, it’s because of Andy Reid:
Maybe there’s some truth to the fact that Bieniemy not calling plays is impacting his ability to land a head coaching gig but let’s not forget, Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy both got head coaching jobs while they were coordinators under Reid.
Eric Bieniemy is interviewing for the Washington Commanders offensive coordinator job and there’s a real shot that he could walk away from the Kansas City Chiefs in hopes of growing his resume more.
