How can the Washington Commanders convince Eric Bieniemy to become their new offensive coordinator in 2023?

It seems as if things might be heating up as the Washington Commanders look for a new offensive coordinator in 2023. With just a few short days until the Super Bowl, it won’t be much longer before the franchise finds out if their quest to land Eric Bieniemy is successful or not.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Commanders remain interested in securing Bieniemy’s services once his commitments with the Kansas City Chiefs conclude. The respected coach has received fewer head coaching requests than usual, so this could be something that interests him if he wants a change of scenery.

Schefter also stated that the Baltimore Ravens are also keeping a close eye on developments. Bieniemy’s earned the right to decide his own future, but Washington could be an intriguing landing spot providing he agrees to interview.

With this in mind, here are three ways the Commanders can convince Bieniemy to become their offensive coordinator in 2023.

Way No. 1

Eric Bieniemy gets full control of Washington Commanders’ offense

One reason why Eric Bieniemy’s accomplishments have a small asterisk attached is the presence of Andy Reid’s input in the Kansas City Chiefs offense. Something the head coach deserves credit for and unwillingly makes people think somewhat differently about his coordinator’s influence working alongside Patrick Mahomes.

If the Washington Commanders want to sweeten the pot for Bieniemy, then giving him complete control of their offensive scheme from top to bottom is a good start. It could take much more than this, but Dan Snyder has deep pockets to ensure money doesn’t become an issue.
