Eric Bienemy On Bringing Chiefs Experience To Washington

New Washington Commanders offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy was careful to avoid talking about being a head coach on Thursday.

He was, inevitably, asked about it in his introductory press conference on Thursday. It was presumed he wouldn’t leave the freshly crowned Chiefs for anything less than a head coaching position.

“Being a head coach right now is not in my thought process,” Eric Bieniemy told reporters. “I live in the moment. I’ve got to be where my feet are. Right now my feet are planted right here.”

“I just want to make sure that these guys understand that there’s a way in which I know how to do it,” Eric Bienemy said.

“But on top of that, I’ve got to make sure that I’m putting these guys in the best situation to be the most explosive, the most dynamic, and also, more importantly, giving us the best opportunity to be successful.

“… When it’s all said and done with, we’re going to play hard, we’re going to play fast, we’re going to have a sense of urgency and a sense of purpose in everything that we do. That’s where it starts, and it’s all about being accountable as well — understanding the fact that indirectly, we all impact each other’s lives. It’s my job to make sure I’m doing what is right by them, but on top of that, they’ve got to make sure that they’re doing right by each other.”

“Today I’ve got to be the best person I can be, I’ve got to be the best coach that I can be and on top of that, I’ve got to get these guys in this building to learn to trust me, to get to know me but also understand what the term accountability means,” he said. “So I have to be accountable to these men. All that stuff about being a head coach, we can talk about that next year some time. Right now, I’m focused on the job at hand.”
