KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is quite the hot commodity this time of year.

In what the media has dubbed "Black Monday," eight NFL teams said goodbye to former head coaches and embarked on journeys to find new ones.

On Wednesday, Bieniemy interviewed with the New York Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He still has interest from other teams including Cincinnati and Miami, and Bieniemy turned down an interview with Arizona.

In his first year as offensive coordinator, Bieniemy's offense led the NFL in both scoring and total offense, with 35.3 points per game and an average of over 425 yards per game, respectively.

Bieniemy was originally hired in 2013 as the Chiefs' running backs coach after Andy Reid took over the franchise.
