The Kansas City Chiefs made a change to their coaching staff this offseason, replacing departing offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who is now the offensive coordinator for the Washington Commanders, with new offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. It’s a major change for the defending Super Bowl champions, but it doesn’t sound like Patrick Mahomes is too worried about it.

Part of the reason Patrick Mahomes is so confident in his new offensive coordinator is that he isn’t exactly new – he was Mahomes’ coordinator when he first joined the Kansas City Chiefs back in 2017.

“It’s been easy, I think for me, just because I was here when he was the OC the first time,” Mahomes said during his press conference this week, according to Pro Football Talk. “Obviously, EB will be missed. I mean the way he was able to take us and lead us to be the offense that we’ve had these last few years — so he’ll definitely be missed.

“But, I’m glad it’s someone that I’m comfortable with, someone that I’ve worked with before.”

While Mahomes is familiar with Nagy, however, not everyone on the roster has played with him before. But Mahomes said Nagy is doing a good job implementing his system.

“I think the guys are starting to learn on how he wants things done,” Mahomes said. “Even though [it’s] the same system, it’s obviously a little bit different on the guy and the coach and stuff like that. It’s been a smooth transition so far and now it’s about kind of continuing to build and build until the season.”

It will certainly be interesting to see how the Chiefs’ offense changes this season with Nagy now the coordinator. However, it’s worth noting that they’ll still have Andy Reid leading the way as the head coach.
