Chiefs assistant Greg Lewis to interview with Commanders

New Washington Commanders assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is wasting no time assembling an offensive staff. On Tuesday, it was revealed that senior offensive assistant Jim Hostler and wide receivers coach Drew Terrell would not return to the Commanders in 2023. Terrell has a potential role on Arizona’s new staff.

As for the Commanders, they met with Chiefs running backs coach Greg Lewis on Wednesday, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

If Lewis sounds familiar to Washington fans, that’s because he spent six seasons as a wide receiver with the Philadelphia Eagles [2003-08] under Andy Reid. After beginning his coaching career in college in 2012, Lewis got his first NFL gig in 2015 as an offensive assistant with the Saints. In 2016, he was Philadelphia’s wide receivers coach under Doug Pederson. In 2017, he joined his old coach in Kansas City, where he coached wide receivers for four seasons.

So why is Lewis now a running backs coach?

Lewis wanted a challenge, so he asked Reid to coach a different position and coached running backs over the last two seasons. If he comes to Washington, the Commanders currently have running backs coach Randy Jordan and assistant running backs coach Jennifer King in place. Would Lewis be coaching receivers again?

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported that Lewis could receive a “top spot” on Bieniemy’s new offensive staff.

Bieniemy’s introductory press conference is set for Thursday morning.
