DC Sports Huddle: The Commanders’ ongoing OC search and Strasburg’s future with the Nats

February 16, 2023

The Washington Commanders’ extensive offensive coordinator search reached its eighth interview Thursday when Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy visited Ashburn. Is the two-time Super Bowl champion OC in KC the right man for the job in D.C.? We discuss Bieniemy’s fit and, in a discussion sparked by Rob’s column on the plight of Black NFL coaches, why he’s even still available despite a resume befitting a head coaching candidate.

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: Nationals Spring Training opened Wednesday without Stephen Strasburg. Is the former World Series MVP done as a big league ace? And, is this the least-anticipated season of Nationals baseball ever?

Huddle up with WTOP Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and Morning Sports Anchor Dave Preston.
