When speaking to the media on Wednesday, Kelce downplayed the altercation he got into with his OC during the team's 19-13 loss on Sunday Night Football to the Indianapolis Colts.
"We're good, we've moved on as a team from last game. And you guys gotta understand me and coach Bieniemy have a very close relationship," Kelce said. "I love him, he's helped me out tremendously as a person, as a professional, and I'm sure he'll keep doing that throughout the rest of my career."
"He's like a father figure, in terms of being there for me on the field," added Kelce.
After the tight end dropped a ball during the SNF matchup, the two argued and Kelce shoved Bieniemy, and the coach and player needed to be separated. Kelce was seen hugging Bieniemy shortly afterward.
The four-time Pro Bowler is known for his fiery temper, and he said emotions got the best of him again during the situation with Bieniemy.
"Sometimes you get a little heated with your brothers or your coaches," said Kelce.
The 30-year-old was clearly frustrated during the loss to the Colts, complaining several times to officials about non-calls. The Cincinnati product finished with four grabs for 70 yards on the night.
Kelce and the rest of the Chiefs will look to bounce back against the Houston Texans in Week 6.
