Would Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy be interested in the head coaching job at USC?
Another head coaching vacancy has opened up and the Kansas City Chiefs have apparently found their offensive coordinator listed as a candidate for the job. This is nothing new or surprising, but it is interesting because the job in question isn’t in the NFL, but rather at USC.
According to a tweet from Adam Schefter, some sources believe that Bieniemy is potentially interested in moving out west and coaching the USC Trojans. There are certainly worse places to coach and Bieniemy is from southern California. It could be a match made in heaven if the Trojans could actually pull this off.
Bieniemy and the Kansas City Chiefs have had to deal with these sorts of reports, rumblings, and rumors for a few years now. Unfortunately for Bieniemy, he hasn’t received a head coaching opportunity in the NFL just yet.
Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Bieniemy reportedly a candidate for head coaching vacancy at USC
But that’s not to say he isn’t qualified to be a head coach. Many would argue that he’s more than done enough to prove he deserves a shot to lead a team. There have been multiple occasions where Bieniemy has seemingly been the best candidate to be reported for a head coaching job, but someone else has always been picked over him.
It would benefit the Kansas City Chiefs if Bieniemy wasn’t competing against them, but he shouldn’t have to settle for a college coaching gig if he’d rather be leading a team in the NFL. His resume and his offense speak for themselves.
Of course, if Bieniemy is truly interested in the USC head coaching job and he wants to tear defenses apart in the Pac-12, he’d be a great candidate for that particular gig.
