The 53-year-old has been the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator since the 2018 season. The Chiefs are expected to promote Matt Nagy to offensive coordinator in the coming days to replace Bieniemy.

Since being named Chiefs offensive coordinator, Bieniemy has had several interviews for head coaching positions. However, he was always passed over, like he was again in this coaching cycle.

Now, with this job, he can prove to franchises that he can lead a team away from Andy Reid. Under Reid and with the Chiefs, the team won two Super Bowl Championships.

Before becoming Chiefs offensive coordinator, he was the Chiefs running backs coach from 2013 through 2017. He also served as the Colorado Buffaloes’ offensive coordinator in 2011 and 2012.

Bieniemy also served as the Vikings’ assistant head coach and running backs coach in 2010. He also served as the Vikings running backs coach from 2006 through 2009.

The former NFL player began his coaching career in college football. He was the Buffaloes running backs coach from 2001 through 2002.

Then, he moved on to be the UCLA Bruins running backs coach from 2003 through 2005.
