Tennessee State football player expelled after reportedly punching coach on sideline

TSU Football Player Expelled After Violent Incident During Game

A Tennessee State football player was dismissed from the team Saturday and expelled from the school Monday after video showed him punching one of his own coaches on the sideline during a game.

Latrelle Lee, a senior defensive end, twice punched TSU head strength coach T.J. Greenstone in the side of the head.

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. Lee, 6-foot-2 240 pounds, who has only played in two games this year, hits Greenstone twice in the head before Greenstone falls to the ground.

Greenstone, a defensive tackle at Vanderbilt from 2007-11, was named TSU's strength and conditioning coach in 2016 and serves as the "get back" coach for the sideline. Adding, "We are committed to supporting the coach who was personally affected and our concern now is with him". He did not play in Saturday's game, according to a report from The Tennessean.

Through nine games this season, games Lee tallied 18 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss.

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