LeSean McCoy ramps up criticism of Chip Kelly in ESPN interview

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has made it known he's not happy about the way his time with the Philadelphia Eagles ended.

McCoy earlier this offseason said Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly doesn't "like or respect" star players, but he took the criticism of Kelly to another level during a recent interview with ESPN.

As part of a question-and-answer session with ESPN's Bills reporter, Mike Rodak, McCoy said "the relationship was never really great," with Kelly.

"I feel like I always respected him as a coach," McCoy told Rodak for an article that will appear in the May 25 issues of ESPN the Magazine, but is available online now. "I think that's the way he runs his team. 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."
