Current Job: Minnesota Vikings (Asst. Head Coach/Running Backs Coach)
If the administration wants to bring in a former Buff who was a major part of the school's greatest team ever, Bieniemy is a perfect fit.
Bieniemy was an All-American, third-place finisher in the 1990 Heisman race and owns virtually all of the school's career rushing records from his time with the great Bill McCartney teams of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Although his career as an professional player wasn't spectacular, his NFL coaching career has been very good (although having Adrian Peterson helps). After just a few seasons, he was promoted to assistant head coach.
The Vikings might shake up the staff, in part or in whole, this offseason. He may eventually be in line for a coordinator position, but if he and the staff are fired in Minnesota, that would set back those plans.
If the Buffs were to offer him the head gig, it would be a great move for both parties.
