Tennessee's nightmare season continues as Vols dismiss WR for profanity-laced tirade

Tennessee's nightmare season continues as Vols dismiss WR for profanity-laced tirade

In a video posted on the social media website, Jennings used several profanities and a racial slur repeatedly to express his displeasure with Tennessee's coaching staff.

Jennings (wrist) was dismissed from the Volunteers' football program Wednesday, Mike Wilson of the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

"The coaching staff is holding us back", he said.

"Bring us a coaching staff that is honest and will do everything in their power for the kids and the players". He called the staff snakes, fake and accused them of lying. He apparently said he went to practice Wednesday hoping to play against the Vanderbilt Commodores Saturday.


"It ain't nothing to do with no players", Jennings said. It's straight f-- coaching. He caught 40 passes for 580 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016.

But the fact that Hoke consulted with AD John Currie makes it seem like the edict may have come from on high, and wasn't Hoke's decision alone.

Say what you want about Jennings's rant, but he clearly is a great leader for the Tennessee football program. Quinten Dormady began the season as the team's starting quarterback, with freshman Jarrett Guarantano receiving reps as then-head coach Butch Jones looked for an answer at quarterback.

But he should not allow an interim coach make such a crucial decision.
