Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is reportedly being courted by his alma matar Colorado to be its new head coach. Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has received interest from his alma mater regarding their head coaching vacancy, but there is nothing imminent between the sides, according to a report.

Colorado lost head coach Mel Tucker on Tuesday night when Tucker decided to take the Michigan State job. On Wednesday, CU announced Darrin Chiaverini would take over on an interim basis. In Denver, 9News’ Mike Klis reported there was mutual interest between Bieniemy and Colorado.

On Thursday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Colorado reached out to the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator.

Bieniemy, who was a star running back at Colorado, has been a coach with the Chiefs since 2013, and just completed his second season as their offensive coordinator.

Even though Bieniemy was passed over for multiple NFL head coach jobs, he might feel like it’s worth waiting to get an NFL job before dropping down to college, where he hasn’t been for several years.
