It's become increasingly apparent Rob Chudzinski didn't leave much goodwill behind in Charlotte, N.C.
Now DeAngelo Williams is speaking out. Williams -- who ranks third in the NFL in rushing entering Week 4 -- told reporters Tuesday that Chudzinski's exit has been directly responsible for his resurgence in the backfield.
"I'm not going to start anything or push anything out there," Williams said, via ESPN.com. "I can say this, though -- a different offensive coordinator. I can definitely say that. The last offensive coordinator got rid of his starting running back."
"Did I take a shot? Or did I speak facts?" Williams asked. "A shot is just like it can be factual but it's really not. That was all facts. I wasn't taking a shot at him -- he knows what he's doing."
We're not sure Williams actually believes that last part.
