The Kansas City Chiefs remain a powerhouse in the NFL heading into the offseason.
The organization is keeping its key pieces intact all over the roster and coaching staff.
That includes at the offensive coordinator spot, as reports confirmed the team is holding onto Eric Bieniemy for another year.
Eric Bieniemy is returning to Kansas City this season as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator, as @jeffrichadiha reported.

Bieniemy is realistically a top head coaching candidate because of his work with the Chiefs offense since 2013.
Yet he keeps getting passed over for jobs, which ends up being good news for Kansas City.
He is now sticking around after rumors emerged his contract was up and he could seek a lucrative coordinator deal elsewhere.
Still Seeking A Head Coaching Job
Bieniemy is someone who has been in the head coaching rumor mill for years without any luck at landing a position.
There are past legal issues of note, but those have not stopped him from getting interviews in the first place.
Ultimately, he could stay in Kansas City and one day take over for Andy Reid.
He seems to work well with Patrick Mahomes and the entire offense and is still only 52 years old.
Bieniemy should also enjoy much more success with the Chiefs than he would right away with a team that has a head coaching vacancy.
The Chiefs are right on the verge of being a dynasty and a title next season could get them back on that track.
Keeping the entire staff intact is a key step toward that goal and while Bieniemy would likely prefer to lead his own team, he has one of the most sought after jobs in the entire NFL.
