Is perception of Eric Bieniemy's role with Chiefs keeping him from being next head coach from Andy Reid's tree?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Over and over again Sunday, as the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense was pouring it on the Houston Texans in a stunning 51-31 win in the divisional round, the television cameras focused on Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

This is not unusual. Reid is a mastermind when it comes to offensive football, and he is correctly regarded as the engine that makes the Chiefs run.

But there are a lot of voices that go into these genius gameplans, a lot of collaboration. Always have been. Reid lacks ego, so over the years he has earned a reputation for creating his gameplans with a communal approach.
