Tennessee State Football Player Expelled From School For Knocking Coach Out
Yeah, that’s not going to help you make it to the NFL.
Latrelle Lee, a defensive end for the Tennessee State University Tigers has been kicked out of school for a cheap and vicious punch to the Tigers’ head strength coach T.J. Greenstone. Lee was immediately booted from the sidelines by head coach Rod Reed, and as of yesterday is no longer enrolled at TSU.
Check out the brutal hit below.

Greenstone’s job during games is to keep players away from the sidelines to avoid being penalized. There is no word yet as to why in the hell Lee decided to poach Greenstone.
Director of Athletics Teresa Phillips said this in a statement:
“We, of course, do not condone any act of violence within our department and are very disturbed by the action of one of our students. We are committed to supporting the coach who was personally affected and our concern now is with him.”
Lee is a senior who majoring in criminal justice, and had started two games this year. And those are going to be the only games he starts in a long, long time.
