The Eagles got a later start than most on their coaching search, but they’re still apparently casting a wide net.

The club has now requested to interview Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, according to NFL media’s Mike Garafolo. It’s unclear when the interview will take place given that Kansas City is still alive in the postseason.

Bieniemy played one season for the Eagles in 1999 — Andy Reid’s first year as the team’s head coach.

Bieniemy reportedly drew interest from the Falcons, Lions, Jaguars, Chargers, and Jets — though all have either hired a different candidate or there is a reported favorite. The Texans also requested Bieniemy, but that was after the Chiefs playoff bye and he has not yet interviewed with the club.

Philadelphia fired Doug Pederson on Monday.

  1. For someone who was the hot HC prospect this year Bieniemy’s prospects
    for landing a job are getting dim.

  2. He has been interviewing for 2 years now. So far no offers or the favorite. He either is terrible in interviews or there is some sort of baggage we dont know about. Also, the way people talk so glowing about him its strange that he cant get a job yet Adam Gase and Pat Shurmur got 2!

  3. Anyone who’s even considering that job should ask if Howie will still be the GM. If he is then I’d say no thanks.

  4. Bieniemy’s past would absolutely be brought up but somehow Vance Joseph found his way through. For about 20 years Bieniemy hasn’t been in the news for anything negative so it’s hard to call it. There are still some openings so I wouldn’t say he’s not going to get a job but there will definitely be a portion of society who would be forever offended for giving this guy a promotion. In the end nobody lives a span of two decades of their life without changing or growing so it would be ridiculous for that to the the only issue.
