The Chiefs have named running backs coach Eric Bieniemy as their new offensive coordinator, the team announced.

All of the ceremonies befitting of the 16th coach in Bears' history have been taken care of, with Chicago getting to learn a little more about Matt Nagy.

The 48-year-old Bieniemy has been in charge of the Kansas City running backs since 2013. Bieniemy also called plays in his two-year stint as Colorado OC.

Both played for legendary DE head coach Tubby Raymond, who served as head coach of the Blue Hens for 36 seasons in 1966-2001.

Prior to that, Bieniemy spent five seasons as Minnesota's running backs coach; producing a 1,000-yard runner in each of those seasons. "I know he will do a good job".

"We all are aware of that situation and that's a very important hire for me, but there's a lot of things that go into that decision", the offensive-minded Nagy said, via the Chicago Tribune, about filling his defensive coordinator position. Adrian Peterson was drafted by the club the following year and amassed 5,782 yards and 52 touchdowns in Bieniemy's final four seasons with the Vikings.

Bieniemy was a second-round pick of the Chargers in 1991, and played running back for nine seasons with San Diego, Cincinnati and Philadelphia.
