It’s always been assumed that tension between Vince Young and Jeff Fisher led to their breakup in Tennessee, but now the former third overall pick is sharing his side of the story.

In an extensive interview with Sports Illustrated’s Greg Bishop, Young couldn’t help but take shots at his former head coach.

“I’m going to expose his ass,” Young said of Fisher before going on to accuse Fisher of backstabbing him by airing their private business in the media and at one point ordering a team plane to take off without a tardy Young on board.

Young said he felt as if Fisher abandoned him; Fisher claims the opposite.

Young also took some shots at NFL journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, a player whose job Young believes he himself deserves to have.

“I hate to name-drop, but Fitzpatrick is still playing!? He leads the league in interceptions, and he’s still f—ing getting paid? I mean, what the f— is going on?”

Fitzpatrick hasn’t led the NFL in interceptions since 2011, but ranked in the top three last season.

Young recently tried to kickstart his football career by signing with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, but got injured and was cut before the season began.
