New York Giants interview Eric Bieniemy for head...


The New York Giants will conduct two interviews for their vacant head coaching position on Saturday, and that began with Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

An orchestrator of one of the league’s most-prolific offenses, Bieniemy is an interesting candidate for the Giants, who are looking for someone to help develop quarterback Daniel Jones while returning some structure to the locker room.

Per the Giants release:

Bieniemy began his coaching career at Thomas Jefferson High School in Colorado in 2000, one year after his final season as a player. In 2001, he moved to his alma mater, the University of Colorado, where he was the running backs coach for two years. Bieniemy held the same position at UCLA from 2003-05 and was also the recruiting coordinator his final year.

In 2006, Bieniemy began his NFL coaching career as the Minnesota Vikings’ running backs coach, a position he held for five years. The Vikings produced a 1,000-yard rusher in every one of those seasons. In 2007, Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor combined for 2,185 rushing yards (1,341 by Peterson, who was All-Pro as a rookie). Peterson set a then Vikings record with 1,760 yards in 2008.

Bieniemy returned to Colorado in 2011-12 as offensive coordinator and running backs coach, his final stop before joining the Chiefs.

Still in Kansas City, Bieniemy met with co-owner John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams. Co-owners Steve Tisch, who promised to be more physically present around the team, was not said to be in attendance during the interview.

In addition to Bieniemy, the Giants have also confirmed interviews with Mike McCarthy and Kris Richard.
