The promise of promotion to Washington Commanders HC

Ron Rivera’s done a good job in difficult circumstances since becoming head coach. Aside from his own personal adversity, the experienced leader has had to deal with plenty of comings and goings at the quarterback position to further complicate matters.

Rivera got the Washington Commanders into the postseason in 2021 and almost achieved the same feat before falling short this season. The roster looks well placed to be competitive if a productive signal-caller is required, but the margin for error has decreased heading into Year 3 of his tenure.

If it all goes wrong for Rivera next season, the Commanders might decide to start fresh. And if Eric Bieniemy was on the coaching staff, there’s every chance he could get the promotion he’s been looking for.

While giving Bieniemy a cast-iron guarantee he’d get the job if Rivera cannot live up to his end of the bargain is unlikely, all the coach wants is a fair chance. Something that hasn’t come his way over the last three head coaching cycles for one reason or another.

There are far worse situations for Bieniemy to find himself in. And with Dan Snyder reportedly willing to sell the team in the weeks after the Super Bowl, any new figurehead will do whatever it takes to get this once-proud franchise back among the contenders.
