Yep, that’ll do it.
According to The Tennessean, Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee has not only been dismissed from the FCS program but expelled from the university after he punched Tigers strength & conditioning coach T.J. Greenstone twice in the head on the sidelines during this past Saturday’s win over Southeast Missouri State. Greenstone serves as TSU’s “get-back” coach for players, charged with keeping them from creeping toward the field of play and, in the process, keeping the team from drawing a flag.
For whatever reason, Lee didn’t appreciate Greenstone carrying out one of his duties this time around as he punched the coach twice, the second of which was hard enough to knock the member of head coach Rod Reed‘s staff to the ground.
The reason behind Lee, a senior, getting violent with the coach is unknown at the moment. Neither the parties involved nor the football program have offered any specifics publicly.
It should be noted, somewhat ironically as it turns out, that Lee had been majoring in criminal justice prior to the attack that led to his being expelled. Whether he gets, because of the video evidence, an up-close and personal view of the criminal justice system remains to be seen.
