The former Chiefs and Commander Eric Bieniemi’s offensive coordinator is currently in search of new opportunities. According to sources close to the situation, Bienimi could potentially return to the Chiefs for the 2024 season. If this were to happen, his new title would likely be “assistant head coach,” with Matt Nagy remaining as the offensive coordinator.

During his tenure with the Chiefs, Bieniemi played a crucial role in setting a high standard of accountability among the players. When concerns arose that he was coaching too much, quarterback Patrick Mahomes defended him before the season started. Mahomes also credited Bieniemi with helping him take “f***ing shots” ahead of the AFC Championship game.

It is worth noting that Bieniemi did not visit the Chiefs before Super Bowl LVIII, as he was seriously considering an offer from the Seahawks for their offensive coordinator position. However, that role went to Ryan Grubb. Despite this setback, there is still a possibility that Bieniemi could return to the Chiefs as head coach if Andy Reid decides to retire after the upcoming game. Players like Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce have expressed support for him filling this role if given the chance.
