Tennessee State player punches coach on sideline, gets kicked off team

Greenstone is supposed to keep players who aren't in the game from getting too close to the sideline to avoid penalties, the Tennessean reports.

Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee was kicked off the team and then kicked out of the university altogether, after twice punching the Tigers' head strength coach T.J. Greenstone during Saturday's game.

The Post has reached out to Nashville police and Tennessee State University police to see if any further action will be taken against Lee, and will update this post if needed.

The incident occurred in TSU's home win over over Southeast Missouri.

During the time of the punches, Greenstone was reportedly walking down the sideline telling players to get back if they were toeing the line. There is no word yet as to why in the hell Lee chose to poach Greenstone.

Tennessee State has one regular-season game remaining in the 2017 campaign against Jacksonville State on Thursday night.

Lee was a part-time starter over the past two seasons. In 2016, he made the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll.

He did not play in Saturday's game.

Greenstone, who played defensive tackle at Vanderbilt (2007-2011), is in his fourth season at TSU.
