So, it's possible that Eric Bieniemy does not get a HC job this cycle
This would turn into a big deal, right?

quote:

Been texting with an NFL source this morning who thinks there's a very strong chance Eric Bieniemy isn't hired for a HC opportunity this cycle.

Cites concern about Reid's coaching tree and timing w/Chiefs expected to make another SB run


LINK

quote:

@georgewrighster

Let’s move the goalposts for Black coaches again.

Teams now questioning Bieniemy as a HC candidate because of Reid’s coaching tree which has two coaches still in the playoffs is BS.

Belichick disciples track record is checkered.

quote:

@billbarnwell

Reid tree:

John Harbaugh (SB winner)
Doug Pederson (SB winner)
Ron Rivera (made it to SB)
Sean McDermott (on his way to SB?)

quote:

@NFL_DougFarrar

Could also be that Bieniemy is such a hot name at this point, he'd have more clout than a lot of teams would want a... how shall I put this... Black coach to have.

quote:

@MattVerderame

If you're not hiring Eric Bieniemy because he's part of Andy Reid's coaching tree, you should be fired.

quote:

@MikeTanier

Every other offensive coordinator with Eric Bieniemy's credentials, ever: "He's obviously a top choice, clear cut, hand him any franchise he wants."

Bieniemy: "Gosh, is the time right? Was it him or the coach? That coaching tree hasn't produced a SB winner in MONTHS! Etc."

quote:

@MikeTanier

I hear criticisms of Bieniemy, but I also know special pleading when I hear it. This league falls all over itself for Adam Gase and Bill O'Brien. Decision makers are only extra-picky about a top coordinator when it confirms their biases.

For a minute, I guess.
Then people will move on to the next thing

He's nearly interviewed for all the vacancies. If he's not hired by one that's on him

I know it was a long time ago but hasn’t he been arrested like three times? And was on staff during the CU rape scandal. I get why there are questions from a character perspective

Nobody knows what kind of deal he may also have with the KC org and Reid.

There's also free picks to KC if he's hired and who wants to give them free picks?

Wonder if these same guys knighting for him have a rough draft of “Eric Bieniemy’s Problematic History with Women” ready to fire up when he gets hired.

IIRC, he assaulted some parking attendant. It was during his time in college, so I don't know if that's really something an owner would be bothered by. I don't know much about his involvement with the rape scandals.

I don’t think that rule passed.

I always find it funny that all these writers somehow think they know what makes a good organizational leader and that a specific person has those qualities, simply because of some sort of tangential play calling success.


What if, get this, Eric Bieniemy is a shitty interview or has no idea how to lead an organization or the skills to communicate that plan if it exists. Why even interview people if you are just hiring based on resume?

At this point, he has a damn good resume.

If he's not being hired, I wouldn't think it's because he's black. There's something else going on that's turning them off. The NFL is all about results, they would hire anyone if it guaranteed success.

A guy like Gentry in the NBA is a retread and got hc gig after gig because he's a damn good speaker. He's a shitty coach, but got another chance because his OC resume was legit in gsw. It's equally about being able to talk and convince ownership as it is about results

This sounds like a situation where we make up a source and story and create a bunch of outrage over something that won’t happen. He’ll be a HC.

He is the coach in waiting at KC and is playing hard to get

I looked it up and it was when he was 24, had a DUI in 01 and a few other small things in college. The CU rape scandal stuff is probably the only thing to really be concerned about.

He has an entire section on his Wikipedia page for "Controversies". The section has 6 entries....

Thats not nothing. Im not saying he's a bad guy or should be disqualified.

But imagine if he didn't have those, but say....Pete Carmicheal did. And Bienemy got passed up for a job that Carmichael got while having those incidents. They would be screaming "you hired a white guy with legitimate character issues over Eric Bienemey!!!"


Another point to be made is that I've literally never seen a media campaign for a coach like we've been seeing for EB. And its because it allows people to comment on a perceived social issue.

You think teams are getting grief for not hiring him? Imagine if they had to fire him.

Thats not fair to EB, but you know a GM is going "don't i really want to hire a guy who the media will call me racist for firing?".

Reid has been around for a long time. Maybe Eric is waiting around for him to retire soon. He's definitely not going to outlast Mahomes' career. The next Kansas City coach will have several years of prime Patrick. It's going to be a sweet gig.

Maybe raping is a problem for some owners

Not sold on EB. He's an offensive Dan Quinn IMO.
