Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy will be spending some time with a divisional rival on Friday.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the Broncos are set to interview Bieniemy for their head coaching vacancy. It’s the first interview of this hiring cycle for Bieniemy, who has interviewed for several other teams in recent years.

The Bieniemy interview will take place in person. The Broncos are interviewing Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan and Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell remotely on Thursday.

They’ve also interviewed Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, Packers quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy, Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, Patriots defensive coordinator Jerod Mayo, Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, and Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

Klis reports the team may now be moving on to a second round of interviews as they move closer to choosing their next head coach.

  1. There’s a temptation to look for somebody with experience, but why would you want to hire somebody who couldn’t cut it in their previous chance?

    I’d rather take a chance on Eric, not because he fits a profile but because he’s been around long enough and he’s got some roots here and it would be a good move to remove one of the Chief’s Coordinators.

  2. but but but he doesn’t call plays…last year everyone was saying that’s why he wasn’t hired

  3. Someone please give him a HC spot. Then this story will go away….. for 2 or 3 years before he’s fired

  4. Chargers should have hired him last year instead of the smug “boy genius” they hired instead.

  5. Bieniemy will be the best hc hired this offseason. You will love his weekly team press conferences. He will make a great head coach. He installs the offense game plans. Reid then looks at it and tweets them. He works with pm and the offense implementing the game plan. He comands the players respect. He doesn’t get rattled during the game. The players feed off of that. Bieniemy is a leader. Gives the best press conferences and it is being said by others teams he actually interviews very well. He knows Andy’s offense like the back of his hand. Your team will be running the Kansas city offense. Thats a very good thing. No more run run pass for 3 yards punt.

    Where does Elway fit in this?

    He doesn’t, how many times do people need to be told that Elway is NO LONGER the GM? That ship sailed last year, George Patton is the one hiring/firing and making personnel decisions right now and will be doing so moving forward.
