Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy finds himself back at the Kansas City Chiefs after failing to land a head coaching job.

It looks like every season Bieniemy, 52, is on the sidelines for the Chiefs will be his last. He has interviewed 14 NFL teams in recent years, but has yet to be offered a head coaching job. This is the story of Bieniemy’s annual off-season cycle. Wash, rinse, repeat.

This year has been no different, and Bieniemy has now verbally agreed to return to the Chiefs as offensive coordinator next fall, a role he has held since 2018.

“The contract (of Bieniemy) is not signed yet, but I think it will be done”, Matt Verderame tweeted. “The chiefs supported Bieniemy when he interviewed (other teams), but they also want him back.”

Bieniemy spent 10 seasons as a running back in the NFL. His playing career ended in 1999 and he joined the professional coaching ranks in 2006. He has been on Kansas City head coach Andy Reid’s staff since the 2013 campaign and is widely regarded as one of the best coordinators in the league. Under Reid and Bieniemy, Kansas City has played in four straight AFC Championship games.

They will try to do five in a row in the fall. And then it will probably be wash, rinse, repeat for Bieniemy in 2023.
