Eric Bieniemy: His offensive mind being fool’s gold
Eric Bieniemy has been one of the hottest coaching names in football all season as he if the offensive coordinator of the best offensive team in the league, the Kansas City Chiefs. Not only are the Chiefs stacked, but they are inventive with what they do with that talent.
Bieniemy has gotten a great rub from that and there is now no doubt that he will get hired this offseason, and rightfully so. Bieniemy has not yet gotten a chance to be a head coach in the NFL and being a part of the best team in the league gets you those opportunities.
We have to ask ourselves though: how much of the Chiefs’ offense is Bieniemy really responsible for? They were great before he was the OC and before Patrick Mahomes and they will be great after he gets a head coaching gig.
Andy Reid is a known offensive genius and this offense is mostly his doing. That is why the Chiefs have always been competitive with Reid at the helm.
This is similar to the Cincinnati Bengals hiring Zac Taylor because he was associated with Sean McVay and his offense. It is not a guarantee that Bieniemy could translate that offensive success to LA.
