The Chiefs may welcome back Eric Bieniemy

Bieniemy’s Potential Return to Chiefs as Assistant Head Coach: How He Inspired Mahomes and Boosted Team Performance

Eric Bieniemy, the former Chiefs and Commanders offensive coordinator, is currently seeking new opportunities. According to a source familiar with the situation, Bieniemy could potentially return to the Chiefs for the 2024 season. His potential new title would likely be “assistant head coach,” while Matt Nagy would likely remain the offensive coordinator. This move could benefit the team in multiple ways, based on the success Bieniemy had with the players during his previous tenure with the Chiefs.

During his time with Kansas City, Bieniemy was known for setting high standards of accountability and inspiring his players to reach their full potential. He met with Mahomes before the AFC Championship and prompted him to express how his return gave players “chill bumps.” When concerns were raised about Bieniemy coaching the Commanders players too hard, Mahomes defended him before the season began.

It’s worth noting that Bieniemy did not visit with the Chiefs before Super Bowl LVIII, as he was in serious consideration for the offensive coordinator position with the Seahawks. However, it went to Ryan Grubb. There’s still a possibility that Bieniemy could return to the Chiefs as a head coach, especially if Andy Reid retires after the upcoming game. Players like Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce may make a strong pitch for Bieniemy to take on this role.
