USC has contacted Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy as part of its coaching search to replace Clay Helton, according to sources
Bieniemy is one of several coaches contacted during the search process, the source said.
“Under this scenario (Bieniemy) would hire a lot of assistant coaches with Southern California backgrounds (for recruiting),” a source said.
Even if USC eventually wanted Bieniemy, there is no guarantee he would take the job. He might get offered an NFL head-coaching job after the season or he could get offered the Chiefs job if Andy Reid decided to retire.
