Alex Smith stated today it's ridiculous that he hasn't been hired as a HC yet.While there is no doubt that Bieniemy "deserves" a HC job, I would love to see him stay and keep rolling this machine!
I may be mistaken, but I think Houston is the only HC opening left. Several teams went with younger coaches, I think following the Sean McVey/Matt Lefleur route. Houston is intriguing, as they are headed for at least some re-tooling, and one has to wonder if they hired Bieniemy, it would keep Watson around (presuming they get along).
The LA times just did an article saying how racism is alive and well in NFL coaching, despite the Rooney Rule.
Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy wants to be an NFL head coach, but teams keep giving those jobs to less-qualified white coaches over him.
Rumors appearing that Eric may be offered the OC job in Seattle at a very high pay, with the HC job to follow when Pete Carroll retires in a year or two (Pete is 69, and if you don't count Romeo Crenell, the oldest NFL coach). I don't know if I'd take that if I were Eric and offered, as the same offer could also exist just waiting for Andy Reid to retire. Pete is also very spry for his age. Reminds me of Marv Levy.
Seattle fans: I believe Jody Allen has taken ownership of the team, as the executor and primary trustee of Paul's estate. I do know she's a huge Seahawks fan, and I'm presuming wise enough to be like her brother and open the wallet and keep her opinions about personal to herself (unlike Jerry Jones, Daniel Snyder, etc.. Though apparently Ron Rivera has a firmer grip on WFT than any previous coach under Snyder). Thoughts?
