Although hard to tell from the following video, Lee actually connected with two punches upon knocking Tigers head strength coach T.J. Greenstone to the ground.

A Tennessee State University football player faces the possibility of criminal charges after he punched an assistant coach on the sideline during Saturday's game against Southeast Missouri. There is as of now no explanation of what led to Lee swinging on Greenstone. Lee is seen in videos hitting Greenstone twice on the side of his head. Greenstone first landed on his knees, then rolled flat onto his back, and lay there stunned on the sky blue sideline.

Lee was immediately dismissed from the sidelines by head coach Rod Reed, and was no longer enrolled at TSU by Monday morning.

Even leading up to Sunday's game, there had been plenty of questionable performances under center. "They didn't tell me about it". In the second half against Washington, Keenum made consecutive throws that illustrated why the Texans and Rams benched him.

According to The Tennessean, Greenstone's job is to keep players away from the sideline to avoid getting penalized. Through nine games this season, games Lee tallied 18 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss. He made the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll in 2016.

TSU (6-4, 2-4 in the OVC) won the game, played on campus at Hale Stadium, 23-20.

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.
