The Kansas City Chiefs could be just days away from their second Super Bowl championship in the last four seasons, but they could also end up losing their offensive coordinator shortly afterward.
There are multiple NFL teams that are interested in hiring Eric Bieniemy away from Kansas City, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that the Washington Commanders and Baltimore Ravens are among those teams.
Chiefs’ OC Eric Bieniemy remains a prime candidate for the offensive coordinator jobs with the Washington Commanders and Baltimore Ravens, per sources.

Bieniemy has been the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator since the 2018 season, which happened to be the first season that quarterback Patrick Mahomes became a full-time starter for them.
Since then, they have reached the AFC Championship Game each year, and this will be their third Super Bowl appearance in the last four years.
Kansas City has ranked first in total yards three times and first in points scored, passing yards and passing touchdowns twice each during Bieniemy’s tenure as its offensive coordinator.
Before 2018, he was the team’s running backs coach for five seasons, and he previously spent five years with the Minnesota Vikings in the same capacity.
Bieniemy has also been an offensive coordinator and running backs coach at the college level.
The Commanders could certainly use a jump-start for their offense, as they ranked 20th in total yards, 24th in points and 29th in rushing touchdowns this season.
Baltimore can certainly run the football, but its passing attack this season was weak, and perhaps Bieniemy could help add some juice to its passing game.
Neither the Commanders nor the Ravens have a QB like Mahomes, but they could look better and more potent offensively with him at the controls in 2023.NEXT: Chiefs WR Discusses His Lack Of Fear Against The Eagles
