It was recently reported that Eric Bieniemy's contract with the Kansas City Chiefs is set to expire. Moments ago, the NFL world received an update on his future with the team.

According to Matt Verderame of FanSided, the Chiefs "anticipate" that Bieniemy will return as the team's offensive coordinator.

"Per source, the Chiefs anticipate Eric Bieniemy will return as their offensive coordinator," Verderame said. "Contract isn't signed yet, but belief is it will get done. Chiefs supported Bieniemy as he interviewed with Saints among exploring other opportunities, but also want him back."

Bieniemy reportedly met with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid this month to discuss his future in Kansas City.

Even though Kansas City expects Bieniemy to return for the 2022 season, a deal hasn't been finalized yet. Until that happens, he could potentially pursue another opportunity.

As for the reactions to the latest Bieniemy news, it seems like Chiefs fans are torn on whether or not he should be retained.

Bieniemy has been very successful as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator. However, he hasn't been able to land a head coaching job in the NFL yet.

We'll see if Bieniemy can improve his stock next season.
