Not only do those on the Tennessee State University football team sideline have to be wary of errant passes, an assistant coach apparently should have been ready for the fist of Tigers defensive end Latrelle Lee. However, during the games, his job is to keep players from getting too close to the sidelines to not incur penalties.
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.

The incident occurred during the Tigers' game against Southeast Missouri at Hale Stadium. According to the Tennessean, Greenstone was walking down the sideline telling players get back up while the offense was on the field just prior to the incident. There is as of now no explanation of what led to Lee swinging on Greenstone. In 2016 he made the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll. And those are going to be the only games he starts in a long, long time.
Lee is a senior from Dothan, Alabama, and did not play in Saturday's 23-20 win. Through nine games this season, games Lee tallied 18 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss.
Greenstone previously played for Vanderbilt from 2007-2011 and has been coaching for the Tigers for the past four seasons.
