The Kansas City Chiefs have officially said goodbye to former offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Bieniemy has spent the last decade with the AFC West franchise, but he’s moving on to a new challenge this offseason.
The 53-year-old is taking over as offensive coordinator of the Washington Commanders. It’s a big loss for the Chiefs. Bieniemy helped create an explosive offense and helped Patrick Mahomes become the quarterback he is today.
10 seasons of leadership, dedication, and greatness. Plus two Lombardi trophies to show for it.

The Chiefs are clearly grateful for all Bieniemy did during his days in KC. “10 seasons of leadership, dedication, and greatness. Plus two Lombardi trophies to show for it. Thank you and congratulations, EB,” the Chiefs tweeted. Chiefs fans are expecting the Washington offense to be one of the best in the NFL in no time.
“EB will be missed in KC. He learned from the best, though. Expect Washington to be up in no time. Best of luck, coach,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“Thank you, Coach EB! Chiefs Kingdom knows your worth…now go show the rest of the NFL,” a Twitter user replied. “Will miss you coach, thank you for everything you did for the Chiefs.
Would not have two Lombardi trophies without your contributions. Will be watching you and rooting for you in Washington! Best of luck,” another fan wrote. Eric Bieniemy will clearly be missed. Now he joins the Commanders, an opportunity to prove he can create an explosive offense without Andy Reid leading the way.
