Quinn discussed how excited and appreciative he was for this opportunity. He also discussed his first two hires as head coach: Offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury and defensive coordinator Joe Whitt Jr.
When the Commanders officially announced Kingsbury as offensive coordinator on Monday, that meant there were two OCs in the building.
Eric Bieniemy, last season’s offensive coordinator, is still with the team and has one year left on his contract.
During his press conference, Quinn was asked about Bieniemy. He said he had a nice conversation with him on Monday and wished him “nothing but the best” in his future. However, Quinn said the two of them wouldn’t be working together in Washington, meaning Bieniemy was free to pursue other opportunities.
Quinn expressed respect for how Bieniemy took a chance on the Washington job last year, even though things didn’t turn out how he or the Commanders wanted.
Quinn sounded like he would do anything in his power to help Bieniemy because, in the coaching fraternity, everyone looks out for one another.
