TSU football player kicked off team after punching coach during Saturday's game


Tennessee State University said a football player no longer attends the school after punching a coach on the sideline during Saturday's game.

According to a TSU spokesperson, Latrelle Lee was kicked off the team and expelled after becoming violent during the game against Southeast Missouri State at Hale Stadium.

The athletic department said Lee was removed from the sideline by the head coach and dismissed from the team immediately.

“We, of course, do not condone any act of violence within our department and are very disturbed by the action of one of our students," Director of Athletics Teresa Phillips said. "We are committed to supporting the coach who was personally affected and our concern now is with him.”

The athletic department said he no longer attends TSU as of 10:30 a.m. on Monday.
