According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, EB may not be going anywhere this offseason.
There's an emerging sense that Eric Bieniemy will once again not land a head-coaching job https://t.co/MQNuV4WcR9

To quote the article:
Working against Bieniemy is the rule that prevents him from being hired until the Kansas City postseason run ends. Only when an assistant from a potential Super Bowl team is the clear-cut top choice for a given team will that team wait for him. If all other things are equal, the guy who’s available now will be hired.
Bieniemy may sense that his ship won’t be coming in this year. As one league source explained it to PFT, Bieniemy is privately saying that he wants to stay with the Chiefs until he finds the perfect job.
This may be disheartening news for Falcons fans, but teams may be skeptical considering Andy Reid is the primary play caller in Kansas City. I can’t say I blame EB for wanting to wait on the perfect opportunity, but I think Los Angeles & Atlanta are both very appealing jobs.
