For years, NFL insiders have lamented Eric Bieniemy’s inability to secure a head coaching position in the league.

Bieniemy accomplished an excellent job with the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense, and he was interviewed several times, but to no avail.

Needless to say, it is unusual to have senior assistants from Super Bowl-winning teams remain in their positions for so long, especially from a team as successful as the Chiefs.

Bieniemy, on the other hand, was only able to secure a position as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach for the Washington Commanders, and the results were disappointing.

Even if the Commanders don’t welcome him back after one season, Shannon Sharpe believes he made a mistake by accepting the same post at UCLA.

Speaking with Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson for their Nightcap show, Sharpe believes that if he couldn’t land a head coaching position as an assistant in the NFL, he’ll simply be disregarded now that he’s out of sight.

“I felt like it was a mistake for him to leave regardless. Sharpe remarked, “He let people convince him that you should go outside of Andy.”

That’s a fascinating point of view, and he might be correct.

Perhaps the Chiefs were not interested in bringing him back, but he could have been Andy Reid’s eventual replacement at Arrowhead Stadium.

Few coaches move from the NFL to college; most do the opposite.

Of course, this is a fantastic hire for the Bruins, and there’s always the possibility that he’ll shock the world with another explosive offense.

Even Nevertheless, it appears that he will continue to be disregarded.
