Chiefs QB coach Matt Nagy “quickly emerged” to replace OC Eric Bieniemy’s role following two Super Bowl wins

The Kansas City Chiefs have lost their offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who left to join the Washington Commanders. The 53-year-old had been with the Chiefs for a decade, having joined in 2013 with head coach Andy Reid before being promoted to the role of offensive coordinator in 2018.

The Chiefs may have already found a replacement for Bieniemy in quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy, who has been reported to have “quickly emerged as the top choice” to take on the role. Nagy has previously acted as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator between 2016-2017 before becoming head coach for the Chicago Bears.

Nagy is reportedly happy to take on the role, having turned down interest from other teams in recent weeks, and will be overseeing an offense featuring star players Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. While it may initially seem like a blow for the Chiefs to lose Bieniemy, it is clear that he was ready to move on and pursue his own ambitions. By taking on the role of offensive coordinator for the Commanders, he will have the chance to lead an offense in his own right and potentially move up to a head coach position in the future.

While Bieniemy has been successful with the Chiefs, leading the offense in the shadow of head coach Reid, he is clearly looking to prove himself as an independent leader. At the Commanders, he will have the opportunity to do just that, as head coach Ron Rivera is more focused on defense. It’s clear that becoming a head coach is a long-term ambition for Bieniemy, and he believes he is qualified for the role.

The Chiefs may be sad to see Bieniemy go, but they are undoubtedly pleased with what he provided during his time with the team. His departure marks a new era for the team, with Nagy taking on the role of offensive coordinator and potentially bringing new ideas and strategies to the table. As the Chiefs look to build on their success and pursue another Super Bowl title, they will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on how their new offensive coordinator performs in the role.
