Tennessee State football player dismissed from team after punching strength coach

Greenstone, a former Vanderbilt defensive tackle, also acts as the Tigers' "get-back" coach, instructing players not in the game to keep their distance from the sideline.

Lee, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound part-time starter, was kicked off the team by coach Rod Reed and expelled, athletic director Teresa Phillips told The Tennessean.

Videos show Lee hitting head strength coach T.J. Greenstone twice in the head, knocking him to the turf on the sideline during the Saturday night game against Southeast Missouri at Hale Stadium. He did not play in Saturday's game, according to a report from The Tennessean.

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.

On Monday morning, he was expelled from school. "We are committed to supporting the coach who was personally affected and our concern now is with him".

Expulsion really could not have come at a worse time for Lee, as he was a senior Criminal Justice major and Honor Roll member past year. Even if Greenstone did say something to provoke Lee, punching him probably wasn't worth Lee ruining his chance at earning a degree.
