Chip Kelly spoke to Buffalo reporters on a conference call today and said he’d love to shake LeSean McCoy’s hand:
“I’d love to shake LeSean’s hand,” Kelly said. “I tried to call him after [the trade]. And I talked to his agent after we traded him. I always wanted to talk to LeSean. Again, I have no issues with LeSean at all. He has a great personality, an infectious personality. I have tremendous respect for LeSean.”
McCoy, ostensibly over the whole thing, was asked about the comment and said:
Why can't Chip shake your hand? McCoy: "Listen man, Chip can't shake shit. At all. Nothing. He knows this. …I can read between the lines."

Why didn't LeSean McCoy take Chip Kelly's calls? "He can't say shit."

McCoy: Chip cares about a lot of things that don't have to do with football.

LeSean McCoy on Chip: "Why do you want me to shake that guy's hand? … "What's the big issue?" "I gotta go, man. I'll see y'all Sunday."

SOMEONE GET ME MY PIRATE’S BOOTY WHILST I WATCH THIS PLAY OUT!
UPDATE: McCoy had two different media availabilites– one with Buffalo media (shit comments) and one with Philly media, where he was a bit less colorful and actually complimentary of Chip:
McCoy, cont.: "…Coach Reid, he was the man. And even Chip, he showed me a lot. He's really smart, he taught me different things."

McCoy: "I'm not going to get into an argument with [Chip] or fight with him. I just don't think we need to be shaking hands."

So, it would seem, that McCoy made his “can’t shake shit” comment only to Buffalo reporters. He may legitimately be too stupid to realize that they would reach Philly.
