Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee was kicked off the team and then kicked out of the university altogether, after twice punching the Tigers' head strength coach T.J. Greenstone during Saturday's game.
Video shows Lee throwing and connecting on two punches to Greenstone's head before the coach falls to the ground.
Greenstone, a defensive tackle at Vanderbilt from 2007-11, was named TSU's strength and conditioning coach in 2016 and serves as the "get back" coach for the sideline.
Lee, who appeared in 36 games throughout his career, did not play during Saturday night's game, a 23-20 win over Southeast Missouri.

CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. Stanley Capital Management Llc bought 33,200 shares as the company's stock declined 15.71% while stock markets rallied.
The TSU offense was on the field when the incident occurred, according to The Tennessean.
University officials were informed and as of 10:30 a.m. on Monday the student has been withdrawn from school. Adding, "We are committed to supporting the coach who was personally affected and our concern now is with him".
Greenstone is supposed to keep players who aren't in the game from getting too close to the sideline to avoid penalties, the Tennessean reports.
The irony in this situation is that Lee was majoring in criminal justice.
