Eric Bieniemy: ‘I’m gonna keep working my ass off’ for head coach opportunity

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy says he’s going to keep “working his ass off” to get the head coaching opportunity he desires.

No hint of friction between Chiefs coaches Eric Bieniemy and Matt Nagy

One of the changes the Kansas City Chiefs made during the offseason was to return Matt Nagy to the offensive coaching staff.
