Amobi Okoye Calls Out Bucs' Coach Greg Schiano

Amobi Okoye has returned to the Chicago Bears after being cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he had some parting shots for Bucs' head coach Greg Schiano.

Schiano had made some comments about a knee injury that bothered Okoye for much of the offseason, and they did not sit well with the defensive tackle. Okoye fired back on Monday, via Pro Football Talk:

"It really makes me question the character of he himself, because, while I was there, he was trying to mold us to be kind of like him. It made me question all the things he was teaching me, as far as TBA — Trust, Belief and Accountability — his way of doing things," Okoye said, via Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. "It’s like, ‘Wow, what type of guy is this?’ That really hurt."

The Bucs jettisoned a number of players in the offseason that were expected to be major contributors in 2012. Okoye was one of those players, as he finished with 27 tackles and four sacks while playing in all 16 games for the Bears a season ago.
