Houston Texans Potential Head Coach Selection: Eric Bieniemy

This is an easy one because it is who is being reported as who current quarterback Deshaun Watson wants as the possible new head coach. Some have said on social media that the success of Eric Bieniemy is because of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

This is something that isn’t true, but make no mistake, having Reid as the head coach to learn from isn’t hurting the career path of Bieniemy, either. Bieniemy is one of the reasons that the Chiefs have been so successful.

Reid and talented offensive players, plus Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, are other important reasons too, but make no mistake about it, Bieniemy is talented himself. Without him, the Chiefs wouldn’t be where they are today as the defending Super Bowl champions and back in the divisional round of the playoffs via a first-round bye.

Bieniemy deserves more credit than some have given him, and the Texans should have already shown interest in the head coach, because now if Watson is disgruntled as some are saying, maybe a possible hire of Bieniemy as the head coach would help smooth things over.

It would also be exciting to see Watson and Bieniemy work together on the offense and even keep current Houston Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly on the staff. Whatever it takes to make the best player on the team happy and comfortable in the offense, that is what the Houston Texans need to accomplish the rest of this offseason.

Also, Bieniemy is a very talented offensive coordinator and should be a head coach in the NFL, so why not with the Texans? Eventually Bieniemy will be a head coach in the NFL, and it could be a huge mistake if the Texans let him go to another team.
