Former Kansas City Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy has come out with a furious tirade against offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
LeSean McCoy has had what can only be described as a very remarkable career and one that could and perhaps should see him make the move to Canton and the Hall of Fame one day.
Having started off his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, playing there from 2009-2014, he then moved on to the Buffalo Bills between 2015-2018 before finishing off his career with two one-season stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, serving primarily as a backup with the last two teams but managing to win a Super Bowl with each of them.
Even though he was a backup and missed a few games during the latter days of his career, that didn’t stop him from putting up the most rushing yards of any player during the 2010s and being named onto the NFL’s All-Decade team in the process.

Not so smooth off the field
Whilst a very productive player on the field, when it comes to his time off the field, he has been known to have a few issues with his coaching staffs.
In 2015 following his trade from the Eagles to the Bills, he was quoted as saying that his relationship with Chip Kelly wasn’t great before making some very serious comments about Kelly’s relationship with other 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”.
Now it appears as though he has some problems with Chiefs offensive co-ordinator Eric Bieniemy, who has become renowned in the past few years as one of the better coordinators in the game for his work with Patrick Mahomes and who many feel should become a head coach at some point.
What has he said?
Speaking on the I Am Athlete podcast, McCoy revealed that he didn’t get along with Bieniemy and had problems with the way that he treated and spoke to some of his players, and that might be the reason that he has yet to be given a head coaching job after all these years:
It certainly is a rather stunning admission from McCoy on his part, and might just provide something of an insight into why Bieniemy is still where he is right now.
