Courtney Cameron Headshot

Senior defensive end for Tennessee State Latrelle Lee was dismissed from the team Saturday after he struck head strength coach T.J. Greenstone, knocking him to the ground on the sidelines.

Greenstone was attempting to keep players on the sidelines from getting too close to the field to avoid penalties at the Tigers’ game against Southeast Missouri at hale Stadium.

Lee, a 22-year-old criminal justice major from Dothan, Ala., did not play Saturday, according to The Tennessean.

A video shared on Twitter by FootballScoop shows Lee hitting Greenstone twice on the side of the head, and Greenstone falling to the ground.

Lee was expelled from the university on Monday.
