LeSean McCoy on Chip Kelly: He Got Rid of the 'Good Black Players'

The Buffalo Bills running back had some harsh words for his former coach.

LeSean McCoy will no longer be playing the state of Pennsylvania, and that's a hard concept to grasp for some.


The Bills running back is speaking out on his former coach Chip Kelly and the way things went down in Philadelphia. From the beginning it seems McCoy and Kelly never had a good relationship.


"The relationship was never really great," McCoy told ESPN. "He wants the full control. You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That's the truth. There's a reason ... It's hard to explain with him. But there's a reason he got rid of all the black players — the good ones — like that."

Pretty strong words from someone who had plans on spending his career with the Eagles. A coach's arrival can change the dynamic of an entire football team.

McCoy wasn't the only player who felt things weren't right with Kelly.


"Other players have talked about it," McCoy said. "But that's one of the things where you don't even care no more. I'm on a new team, ready to play. So it's nothing to do with Chip. I have no hatred toward him, nothing to say negative about him. When he got [to Philadelphia], I didn't know what to expect."


One thing that shocked the running back was the exit of DeSean Jackson.


"When he let DeSean go last year, I was like 'C'mon. DeSean Jackson?' So it is what it is," McCoy said.


One thing is for sure, McCoy plans to show the Bills what they've gained with him this season.
