Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee was expelled from the school Saturday after punching a coach during the Tigers' 23-20 win over Southeast Missouri.

Football Scoop provided the following video of the incident (video contains profanity):

According to Mike Organ of the Tennessean, Lee punched head strength coach T.J. Greenstone twice, resulting in Greenstone falling to the ground.

The 22-year-old Lee was removed from the team by head coach Rod Reed on Saturday before his expulsion became official Monday.

Per Organ, Greenstone is a former Vanderbilt football player tasked with keeping Tennessee State's players from getting too close to the sideline during play.

Lee was a senior at Tennessee State who had made two starts this season, registering 18 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss on the year.

The Dothan, Alabama, native appeared in a total of 27 games in his first three seasons at Tennessee State, totaling seven sacks during that time.

Tennessee State has one regular-season game remaining in the 2017 campaign against Jacksonville State on Thursday night.
