Successful teams in the NFL always have to deal with assistant coaches being looked at for head-coaching opportunities across the league and it is no different for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs head into Week 16 with a record of 13-1 and their eyes set on winning another Super Bowl title.

As the regular season nears an end, a number of teams in the NFL will be looking for new head coaches. Chiefs' offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and QB coach/passing game coordinator Mike Kafka are two names that seem to be popular options.

Eric Bienemy is in his eighth season with the Chiefs and has been their offensive coordinator since 2018. He is another member of the highly regarded Andy Reid coaching tree and someone that teams in need of an offensive spark would target. The Chiefs have ranked within the top-five scoring teams in the NFL in each of the last three seasons.

Mike Kafka is in his fourth season with the Chiefs and has been working with the team's quarterbacks since 2018. He helped Patrick Mahomes break multiple passing records and win the NFL MVP award that year.

Teams seem to be looking to pounce on anyone that has something to do with this powerful Chiefs' offense. By the time next season rolls around, the Chiefs could have a completely new offensive coaching staff. Simply put, that's the price of being successful in the NFL in this day and age.
