The Washington Commanders have added Eric Bieniemy as their assistant head coach and offensive coordinator. The team waited until after the Super Bowl to get their top target, and now the person who helped build the dynamic Kansas City Chiefs offense is joining the Burgundy & Gold.
It should not be surprising that Commanders fans love the acquisition, and why shouldn't they? The Chiefs' offense has been among the top of the league since Bieniemy was promoted to offensive coordinator with the 2022 season, during which the unit finished first in yards (413.6) and points (29.2), being the latest example of that.
Here's a look at how fan are reacting to the news of Bieniemy leading the Commanders' offense in 2023.

Success is fed off of failure, if you’re afraid to fail it’s going to be hard to ever have success.
I wish #EricBieniemy the BEST! 💪🏼 https://t.co/QvK5sCoP2A

I'm REALLY curious as to see who is on Eric Bieniemy's coaching staff (that feels great to post) seeing how he's the assistant head coach.— Bernard Oliver (@boliver36) February 19, 2023
He may get some respected and quality guys on that group and they make take a Washington roster with talent on offense to that next level. https://t.co/rKp2bbxpfa

Eric Beiniemy to…Washington?! To work under a longtime, respected defensive coach?! BUT — BUT — BUT — why would he leave Kansas City?!— Donny Football (@DonChed54) February 18, 2023
Credit for taking a big swing. The Commanders took a shot. Bieniemy was looking for a fresh start and it could have a big payoff.

According to local news Eric Bieniemy will be leaving KC for good and heading to DC in the next week or so. Sounds like somebody’s excited to get to work 🔥— Hilary (@HilareeBanks) February 19, 2023
I LOVE that such a recently decorated coach that is "still wanted" in Kansas City chose to coach in Washington!— Chris Bryant (@HogfarmerChris) February 17, 2023
It speaks volumes of the strengthened culture and the perception that "nobody wants to come to Washington."
Makes me proud.
Welcome, Coach Bieniemy. #HTTC
When this began I never imagined the team would land a candidate as quality as Bieniemy. Credit goes to Ron and Washington on this one https://t.co/NU6DUWhEH6— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) February 17, 2023
Been a while since I’ve seen this fan base been in harmony— Tim Meek (@IndySkinsFan) February 17, 2023
Howell expected to be QB1, the majority seem intrigued & good with it
Bieniemy announced as OC to overwhelming excitement & support
Let’s kill the draft, extend these key players in house & have a good FA 💪 #HTTC pic.twitter.com/gQGJL6bZKv
