Richard Sherman, the 49ers’ star acquisition of free agency, is never afraid to speak his mind. That was the case in a recent appearance on “The TomaHawk Show,” hosted by NFL vets Joe Thomas and Andrew Hawkins.

Asked about his departure from the only NFL franchise he’d known in his first seven seasons, Sherman took aim at his old boss, head coach Pete Carroll.

“His philosophy is more built for college, you know,’’ Sherman said (H/T The Seattle Times). “You get four years, guys rotate in, rotate out.’’

Sherman, a four-time pro bowler and 2015 second-team All-Pro, was also candid about his release, part of a changing of the guard for the Super Bowl XLVIII  champs, whose famed secondary, the Legion of Boom, is no more.

“This is the first time anybody who has been injured as a core player has been cut,’’ Sherman said. “So it felt kind of disrespectful to me in a way.”
