Lee did not play in Saturday's game, a 23-20 win over Southeast Missouri State.

A football player at Tennessee State University was kicked off the team and expelled from school after he attacked a coach during a game on Saturday night.

As the strength coach for the Tennessee State football team, T.J. Greenstone's main responsibilities lie in the weight room and not the field of play.

One of Greenstone's job as a coach for TSU is to keep players who aren't playing away from the sidelines so as to avoid penalties. Lee is seen in videos hitting Greenstone twice on the side of his head. The coach crumples to the ground after the second punch, while Lee's teammates look on.

The school, which would not even confirm the name of the student involved in the sideline incident, has not officially announced that Lee has been expelled.

Expulsion really could not have come at a worse time for Lee, as he was a senior Criminal Justice major and Honor Roll member a year ago. He made the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll in 2016.

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.
