The San Antonio Commanders of the Alliance of American Football (AAF) have hired Eric Bieniemy as their new offensive coordinator. Bieniemy, who has been an assistant coach in the NFL for the past nine seasons, is expected to bring a new scheme and a “championship caliber” to the Commanders.
Despite the opportunity to become a head coach in the NFL, Bieniemy insists that he is focused on the Commanders and not on the possibility of becoming a head coach.
“Being a head coach right now is not in my thought process,” Bieniemy said in an interview with Yahoo Sports. “My focus is on the Commanders and helping them win a championship. That’s all that matters right now.”
Bieniemy has been praised by many in the NFL, including Rich Eisen of The Rich Eisen Show, who said that Bieniemy has nothing left to prove to become a head coach.
“Eric Bieniemy has done everything he can to prove that he is ready to become an NFL head coach,” Eisen said. “He has been a successful offensive coordinator in the league for the past nine seasons, and he has the respect of his peers. It’s now up to the NFL teams to make the right decision and hire him.”
With Bieniemy now on board, the Commanders are hoping that he can help them reach their goal of becoming a championship-caliber team.
