Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said he was disappointed he still hasn’t gotten an opportunity to become a head coach in the league despite multiple interviews in recent seasons. Will his departure impact KC Chiefs Super Bowl 2023 odds? Probably not.
“In reality it’s tough,” said Bieniemy, the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs since 2018. “But I don’t let that keep me from doing what I do. I’m still alive. Also, I’m breathing and I have an opportunity to work for a championship team. That’s the beauty of it.
“I don’t want any pity. This is who I am. I’m going to keep pushing, keep knocking because when it’s all said and done with, I know who I am and I am comfortable with the person I’m striving to be.”
Being the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid has led to an NFL head-coaching job for others. Bieniemy’s two predecessors in the job, Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy, became head coaches. Pederson with the Philadelphia Eagles and Nagy with the Chicago Bears.

Even though the Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback have been among the NFL’s highest-scoring teams and played in each of the past four AFC Championship Games, including a Super Bowl win in 2019, Bieniemy hasn’t had the same success at landing a head coaching job.
“I’ve just got to go get it,” Bieniemy said when asked what he needs to do to land a head-coaching position.”I’m not seeking any comfort. I haven’t gotten it for whatever reason. It [doesn’t] matter. I’m going to keep knocking on that door and I’m going to keep working my ass off to make sure that it happens. My job this year is to make sure we take care of business that needs to be taken care of today to help us achieve the goal down the road. And then it’s time for me when it’s presented to just go and get the job.
“You can always be better. I’m always going to take a look at myself first. I always make sure that I’m checking everything. Also, checking every box. … Personally I have to make sure that I’m always evolving because if you’re not evolving you become like the dinosaurs and you’re extinct.”
