Would Eric Bieniemy make the transition to college football for the USC opening?
When Clay Helton was fired earlier in the week, Bieniemy wasn’t mentioned among the initial lists of potential candidates for USC. But after the dust settled, Adam Schefter reported that there was a wide belief that USC would consider the Chiefs OC.
League sources believe Chiefs' OC Eric Bieniemy will emerge as a head-coaching candidate for USC. Bieniemy is from Southern California and has told confidantes in the past, that USC is one of the only college jobs that might interest him.

Shortly after Adam Schefter dropped the bomb about Eric Bieniemy and USC, the NFL community was quick to mention that Bieniemy should already be the head coach of an NFL team.
Eric Bieniemy should be a Head Coach. In the #NFL.

Freddie Kitchens was a head coach in the NFL because Baker Mayfield liked him, but Eric Bieniemy has to take a college job despite being the Offensive coordinator for the best offense in the NFL for years. pic.twitter.com/rqw6hORhA6

Very bad look for the NFL if Bieniemy decides he has to go to college to run his own shop. https://t.co/AA0wmscnvB

Last offseason, Eric Bieniemy wasn’t highly sought after by NFL teams looking for a new coach, which led to much criticism from Andy Reid and fans all over the league.
But low key, USC might be a better job than getting a chance to be a head coach of a terrible NFL organization.
You’d be in LA, recruiting is easy, the job is high paying, and you’re running one of the biggest programs in the country.
I’d personally love to see Eric Bieniemy get a shot at USC.
