Football World Reacts To The Eric Bieniemy Speculation


Over the past few seasons, Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has been a potential target for multiple head coaching jobs across the NFL. Surprisingly though, that promotion never came for the experienced assistant.

Now, Bieniemy is reportedly the target for a head coaching job at the college level.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the 52-year-old assistant is set to emerge as a candidate for the recently-opened USC job. As a former Southern California native, Bieniemy has previously said that the Trojans’ job is the only one that could entice him back into the college game.

The football world reacted to these reports on Tuesday.

After an embarrassing 42-28 home loss to Stanford this past weekend, longtime head coach Clay Helton was fired by the program. The call was made by USC athletic director Mike Bohn, who hired Bieniemy as the Buffaloes’ offensive coordinator back in 2011 when he was the AD at Colorado.

Bieniemy is no stranger to coaching at the college level, spending time as an assistant for both Colorado and UCLA.

This would certainly be a blow for the Chiefs, whose elite offensive unit has been led by Bieniemy for the past four seasons. That being said, most people agree that it’s time the longtime assistant gets his own head coaching job — whether that be at the college or NFL level.

For now, the Trojans will be led by interim head coach Donte Williams.
