Eric Bieniemy should be acknowledged for his role in the Kansas City Chiefs’ success.

While Andy Reid predominantly handled play-calling, Bieniemy played a significant part in designing strategies, plays, and nurturing talent.

Despite the Chiefs possessing the most potent offense in the league during his tenure, he was overlooked for head coaching positions.

Although he underwent various interviews, his highest position was as the offensive coordinator and associate head coach for the Washington Commanders.

His time with the team did not yield much success, and his tough demeanor reportedly clashed with some players early on.

Nevertheless, it remained baffling that he remained without a head coaching opportunity.

In light of this, former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III expressed on Twitter his amazement at the lack of NFL head coaching offers for Bieniemy, and congratulated him on his new role as the associate head coach and offensive coordinator for the UCLA Bruins.

Quite a few coaches with less impressive credentials have secured coaching roles, raising questions about potential underlying reasons.

Bieniemy, at the very least, deserves a chance to showcase his abilities.

Hopefully, in the future, he will have the opportunity to demonstrate his capabilities and prove all teams that overlooked him wrong in their treatment.
