Another head coaching cycle has come and gone -- and Eric Bieniemy still hasn't been hired for one of the league's top jobs. Bieniemy, biding his time as arguably the most accomplished offensive coordinator in the game with the Kansas City Chiefs, may want to try another destination in pursuit of a head coaching job. 

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Bieniemy's contact with the Chiefs expires after the 2021 season. The Chiefs offensive coordinator could re-up with Kansas City in his current role or seek to become an offensive coordinator somewhere else, creating a frantic frenzy for his services. 

Bieniemy was passed over for another head coaching job as the New Orleans Saints interviewed him for their position, but the job went to Dennis Allen. What seems unfathomable is Bieniemy not having a head coaching job yet, given his resume over the past few years. 

The Chiefs have scored the most points per game in the NFL (30.3) since Bieniemy became the offensive coordinator in 2018, along with the most yards per game (404.2). Kansas City also has the best record in the NFL during Bieniemy's run, going 50-15 with three conference championship game appearances and a Super Bowl title in the 2019 season. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes also has the most passing yards, passing touchdowns, and the second-highest passer rating since the start of the 2018 season -- all with Bieniemy as the offensive coordinator. 

Being part of the Andy Reid coaching tree hasn't helped Bieniemy become an NFL head coach, even though plenty of Reid's former assistants have been successful in the league. Bieniemy has never been a head coach at any level and has been on Reid's staff since Reid was hired by Kansas City in 2013, with Bieniemy first being a running backs coach before his promotion to offensive coordinator in 2018. 

Now, Bieniemy will have a choice where he wants to coach in 2022.
