Chiefs Reveal Top Backup Plan for Offensive Coordinator
The problem with success in the NFL is that everyone else wants a piece of it.
That's what the Kansas City Chiefs are dealing with right now after winning their second Super Bowl in four seasons. Their offensive coordinator, Eric Bieniemy, has been a hot commodity this offseason and is expected to join the Washington Commanders as their new offensive coordinator.
Fortunately for the Chiefs, they already have a backup plan in place for his potential departure.
Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Rumors
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Kansas City's top option to replace Bieniemy is an internal option -- senior assistant and quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy.
Nagy joined the Chiefs in 2022 after serving as the Chicago Bears' head coach from 2018-21. Before that, he was KC's offensive coordinator from 2016-17, so he has experience in the role working under Andy Reid.
That would make this a relatively smooth transition for Nagy should Bieniemy depart. He's already familiar with the players and Reid's scheme, making him a better option than an external hire.
If he does get the job, Nagy will take over an offense that led the NFL in both points and yards per game in 2022.
