Chiefs RB coach Greg Lewis set to interview with Commanders

At least one Kansas City Chiefs assistant could follow Eric Bieniemy to the Washington Commanders according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler was the first to broach the possibility that Chiefs RB coach Greg Lewis could follow Bieniemy to Washington. Now, CBS Sports reporter Josina Anderson has confirmed that Lewis is en route to the Commanders’ team facilities for an interview to discuss a potential role on Bieniemy’s staff.

It’s currently unclear what that role might entail, but Lewis has experience coaching both receivers and running backs. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero has suggested that Lewis could receive a “top spot” on Bieniemy’s staff in Washington.

Lewis played wide receiver under Andy Reid in Philadelphia from 2003-2008. He joined the Chiefs’ coaching staff as a receiver coach in 2017 and spent four seasons in that position before becoming the team’s running backs coach in 2021. He coached the running backs in Kansas City this past season as well.

Bieniemy and Lewis both first crossed paths in 2009-2010, when Lewis was in the final years of his NFL career as a receiver and Bieniemy was assistant head coach and running backs coach with the Minnesota Vikings.
