Where does it say he is the “leading candidate”? Other than the header. In the tweet, I read it as “will emerge as a candidate”. Grand Canyon size difference Coach.
Haha ... that little thug would be a Kiffin Suck like disaster
This feels like a story planted by an agent.
Fuck you, Haden.
As a Chiefs fan, I like Bieniemy. But we just fired a coach whose training wheels fell off. Why hire another coach who comes with training wheels?
EB might be a good coach, but with Mahomes, Paul Hackett would look like a good coach.
Funny you mention Hackett. His resume, all the way down to working with the Chiefs as OC and working with a legendary QB, is very Hackett like. Hacket at least had been a head coach at the Pit beforehand. EB doesn't have that.
Complete asshattery if true.
ZERO HC EXPERIENCE.
Not so fast...there is a rationale per Shefter "One such candidate is Eric Bieniemy of the Kansas City Chiefs.
His play design and play-calling chops are first-rate. Working with Andy Reid in Kansas City has certainly sharpened his eye and attention to detail. What he has done with Patrick Mahomes the past few seasons has been nothing short of sensational.
The quarterbacks who have been leaving Southern California for Clemson, Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia, and other high-profile programs in recent years would very likely stay home if Bieniemy becomes USC’s head coach. That is the obvious selling point: Star offensive players would flock to Los Angeles to play for him."
@tempomacdougall I could call plays with the best QB, best TE, fastest WR in the league and a top 5 OL.
