Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy Interviewing With Panthers Thursday, Giants Saturday


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy is scheduled to interview with the Panthers on Thursday and the Giants on Saturday for their head-coaching vacancies. 

The Browns have also requested an interview with Bieniemy so could have a meeting scheduled for soon after. 

Chiefs HC Andy Reid has said he expects Bieniemy to get a head coaching position this offseason. Last year, Bieniemy met with a number of teams for head-coaching jobs including the Jets, Buccaneers, Dolphins and Bengals.

Bieniemy, 50, played 10 seasons in the NFL for the Chargers, Bengals and Eagles before retiring in 1999. His NFL coaching career began in 2006 when he took over as the Vikings’ RBs coach.

The Chiefs hired him for the same position in 2013 and he was later promoted to offensive coordinator last year. 

In 2019, the Chiefs’ offense ranked No. 6 in total yards, No. 5 in total points, No. 23 in rushing yards and No. 5 in passing yards.
