Eric Bieniemy's Washington Commanders Introductory Presser

Welcome to Washington EB!

The Washington Commanders made a big change to their coaching staff by firing Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner. Many people thought his replacement would be a retread like Pat Shurmur or a cheap internal hire like QB coach Ken Zampese. Head Coach Ron Rivera waited until after the Super Bowl for the chance to interview Kansas City Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy.

Rivera's patience paid off and Bieniemy was hired as Washington's Assistant HC/OC. He will run the offense and call the plays, something he wasn't able to do under Chiefs HC Andy Reid. Along with the assistant head coach title, he received a pay raise along with a multi-year contract. Bieniemy has been talking with the current offensive staff, and there have already been a few coaches who either left for a job elsewhere, or weren't retained. Bieniemy is interviewing several coaches to add to his staff and we could hear more about his plans in today's presser.
