From ESPN - January 9, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs promoted from within for their new offensive coordinator. They hired running backs coach Eric Bieniemy to replace Matt Nagy, who was hired Monday as the head coach of the Chicago Bears.

Bieniemy, 48, has been with the Chiefs as their running backs coach since 2013, when Andy Reid arrived as head coach.

"I have known Eric a long time, both as a player and a coach," Reid said. "He's done a phenomenal job with our running backs and has been involved in every aspect of our offense over the last five years. He's a great teacher and has earned this opportunity. I know he will do a good job."

Bieniemy has experience as a coordinator. He served in that role in 2011 and 2012 at the University of Colorado.
