Warren Sapp: Chucky Got Randy Shannon FiredDecember 17th, 2010
There’s no question that former Bucs great defensive tackle and current NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp can be blunt.
But in an explosive interview with 790 the Ticket in Miami yesterday, Sapp claims that Chucky called the University of Miami to say he was interesting in coaching.
Soon thereafter, Canes coach Randy Shannon was fired but Chucky never took the bait after meeting with Canes officials.
Now we all know here in the Tampa Bay area that Chucky not only wasn’t that great of a person, but he simply couldn’t be trusted. To this day John Lynch winces when Chucky’s name is mentioned and the two have a frosty relationship, to be kind.
Sapp has said on a few occasions how Chucky told Sapp in a phone conversation that Chucky would re-sign Sapp and Chucky told Sapp he had to go but would call right back.
As Sapp is known to say, “I’m still waiting for that call.”
It’s difficult to believe that Sapp would concoct such a story out of thin air. Consider he played for the Canes so it’s likely he has some inside sources down there.
If Chucky actually saw to it that a school removed a coach so he could get the job, only to back out, there shouldn’t be a college much less an NFL team that should give Chucky the time of day. That’s beyond the pale!
