Las Vegas Raiders: 5 head coaching candidates for 2022
No. 1: Eric Bieniemy
Why has nobody hired Eric Bieniemy?
Bieniemy has done nothing but produce one of the best offenses in the NFL year in and year out as the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs. In his first season in the role, the Chiefs led the NFL in both yards and points scored, including the third-most points ever scored in an NFL season with 565.
Since then, his offense has led the Chiefs to back-to-back AFC Championship victories and a Super Bowl victory.
Even before his success as an offensive coordinator, Bieniemy showed incredible aptitude as a running backs coach, as he helped Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles combine for seven pro bowls in his eight total seasons.
The Raiders could use a voice coming from a franchise that knows how to win. Bieniemy has been accustomed to a different type of standard in Kansas City than that in Las Vegas. Knowing how to win can make a significant difference in the NFL.
The Las Vegas Raiders played their worst game of the season in Week 5, losing to a rookie quarterback at home against the Chicago Bears.
There is no better candidate than Eric Bieniemy when it comes to looking for a new head coach, and the Raiders should have him at the top of their list. Not to mention the irony of Jon Gruden’s replacement being the constant prime example of racial disparity regarding head coaches in the NFL.
