The Philadelphia Eagles will have to move quickly to catch up to the other NFL teams interview head coaching candidates. But the Eagles fanbase appears to have made its collective decision already.
Anyone on Twitter might notice that Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is trending right now. That’s because Eagles fans are practically begging owner Jeffrey Lurie to hire the man.
Bieniemy has been Andy Reid’s right-hand man in Kansas City for several years now. The team’s offense turned into one of the best in the league when Bieniemy was promoted to full OC in 2018.
Given that the Eagles’ last head coaching hire was an Andy Reid disciple in Doug Pederson, hiring Bieniemy seems like a no-brainer. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Bieniemy is also a former Eagles running back.
You know who else is a member of the Andy Reid coaching tree? Eric Bieniemy. Just spitballin here https://t.co/cL2Ic3IL1v

Eric Bieniemy has been unable to land a head coaching job for several cycles now. But the Eagles might be that perfect job that he’s reportedly been looking for.
Of course, his biggest priority if he were to get the job would be to fix what’s wrong with Carson Wentz. The team is pretty much married to the quarterback and his massive contract for the next few years, which could be a deterrent to almost any candidate – even Bieniemy.
Would Eric Bieniemy be a good head coach for the Eagles? If not, who should they hire instead?
