The Andy Reid coaching tree has in recent years sent former Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson to the job of head coach of the Eagles and former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy to the job as head coach of the Bears. Current offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has stalled in that spot for three years, passed over for head-coaching offers after his first two seasons of working directly with quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
A week ago, it seemed inevitable that one of the various 2021 vacancies would go to Bieniemy. Now, there’s a sense in league circles that he could once again be shut out of the process.
Bieniemy has interviewed with the Jaguars, Lions, Falcons, Chargers, and Jets. The Texans did not interview him.
