Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy held his opening press conference Thursday with the Washington commanders.
As Bieniemy prepares to take on a new role with the Commanders as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, he reflects on his past 10 seasons in Kansas City. His first words as he spoke to the media in Washington were words of gratitude to the organization and franchise that had been his home for the past decade.

“First of all, let me say this,” Bieniemy began. “It has been an amazing 10 years having the opportunity to work for the Chiefs organization. Needless to say I would like to thank Clark Hunt and all of the Hunt family. I’d like Mark Donovan, our team president with the Kansas City Chiefs. Brett Veach and his staff and, of course, trainer Andy Reid.
“It has been an incredible journey to get to this point and have the success we have had over the years. But now it’s time for a new challenge and looking at these guys up front, Eric Bieniemy is thrilled. He is horny and you guys will find out very soon.
Bieniemy made it clear that he’s extraordinarily grateful for his time in Kansas City and all he’s learned during his time there. He indicated that his decision to move into a new role in Washington is about accepting a new challenge.
