For the past few offseasons, football fans expected to see Eric Bieniemy turn his time leading the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense to Super Bowls into a head coaching job.
Unfortunately, that opportunity didn’t materialize and he instead ended up taking another offensive coordinator job.
He headed to the Washington Commanders to prove that he can lead a successful offense without Patrick Mahomes as his starting quarterback.
Today, football fans got a surprising update on how things are going early on in Bieniemy’s time with the Commanders/
It was revealed earlier today that players have complained to head coach Ron Rivera about Bieniemy’s approach being too harsh.
While some of his new players may not be happy about the offensive coordinator’s approach to coaching, it seems that one of his most high-profile former players still has his back.
Following the news of complaints about Bieniemy being too harsh, former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill took to Twitter to show support for his former OC, who he had the chance to play under for 4 seasons.
Man there is no other coach that has your back like EB !! Take that coaching and get better we all been through … it’s tough but I promise you it will make you better https://t.co/Nsvr3c6KFb

Tyreek Hill and Eric Bieniemy had a lot of success during their time together in Kansas City.
Hill made the Pro Bowl every season while they were working together and earned a pair of 1st Team All-Pro selections as well. They also won a Super Bowl together.
Now Bieniemy is working with a very different group of receivers. None of them have the ridiculous speed that Hill possesses, but he does have a couple of options that are pretty quick.
Terry McLaurin has used his speed to average more than 1000 yards per season for the first 4 years of his career while Curtis Samuel was a dependable option underneath in his first year with the Commanders last year.
He will also have promising 2nd-year receiver Jahan Dotson to work with out wide.
If Eric Bieniemy can turn any of his Washington Commanders receivers into a star like Tyreek Hill, there probably won’t be anybody questioning his methods anymore.
