Colorado expected to contact Eric Bieniemy

Perhaps the door isn't completely closed for Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy to become a head coach in 2020, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

While his NFL options won't be available for another cycle, a college gig just opened that already has a connection to Bieniemy.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the University of Colorado is expected to reach out to Bieniemy for their head coaching position, per a source informed of the situation. 

Bieniemy is a Colorado alum, and the school's all-time leader in rushing (3,940 yards -- less than 200 yards ahead of Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay), all-purpose yards (4,351), and touchdowns (42).

Colorado's head coaching job came open as Mel Tucker will take the head gig at Michigan State.

Given the ties to Colorado, Bieniemy is a logical name to consider. And it would be a coup if the school can convince the Super Bowl-winning OC to return.

Unless he feels the pull to go back to his alma matter, however, it's difficult to imagine the OC leaping to the college level. After hoisting a Lombardi, Bieniemy is the clear-cut top head coaching candidate next offseason, has a great thing going in K.C., and has nothing else to prove to earn an NFL head coaching job.
