Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has been an NFL head coaching candidate the past two offseasons. Perhaps this third offseason will be a charm.
With the league’s regular season coming to an end on Sunday night, the interview process once again begins on Monday. Bieniemy will reportedly start with the Atlanta Falcons, who will interview him on Zoom, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The Falcons said goodbye to Dan Quinn earlier this year.
As Rapoport also notes, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Rober Saleh will also interview with the Falcons on Monday. Bieniemy and Saleh are also expected to interview with the Detroit Lions, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.
The Lions dismissed Matt Patricia earlier this season.

Over the past two offseasons, Bieniemy has reportedly interviewed with the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and New York Giants — and none of those led to a position. He also reportedly turned down an interview from the Arizona Cardinals.
