Patrick Mahomes doesn’t want to lose Eric Bieniemy to another team, but at the same time, he also wants him to get a chance to coach an NFL team as a head coach.
Despite his many interviews, it simply has not happened yet.
Patrick Mahomes is the latest star to chime in on this situation.
“It’s crazy, that would be the best word to describe it,” Mahomes said in a press conference. “To see the stuff that comes out and then knowing the man that he is and the coach that he is every single day, you don’t understand where the stuff comes from. You understand how great of a coach he is, how great of a person he his, how great of a leader he is. And so, it’s crazy that he hasn’t gotten his chance to become a head coach.”
“I promise you, he’ll keep grinding and keep getting better and better and keep helping us out, which is a positive at the end of the day. Hopefully, help us continue to go to these AFC Championship Games and go to more Super Bowls.”

Earlier this week, Bieniemy took the high road when asked about not receiving an offer to become a head coach.
“It’s always good to be mentioned and having an opportunity to pursue your dreams. And yes, I want to be a head coach, but when it’s all said and done, my job is to make sure everything we’re doing right now is not taking away from the goals we’re trying to accomplish.”
