The Houston Texans, Eric Bieniemy and the long road traveled

The Houston Texans opted to move on from Bill O’Brien this week, naming a familiar face to Kansas City Chiefs fans, Romeo Crennel, as its interim head coach. The Texans job will be one of the six to seven openings after the season — that number based upon the average of the past 10 years.

Very shortly after the O’Brien news broke came an expected wave — that the Texans needed to go after current Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

Bieniemy, 51, had the good fortune of becoming the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator in 2018, just as Patrick Mahomes — that year’s NFL MVP — took the helm as the team’s starter.
