Tennessee Kicks WR Off Team After Calling Coaches ‘Snakes’: ‘These Ni**as Is The Weakest’ (VIDEO)
When Jaujaun Jennings woke up this morning, he was still a member of the Tennessee Vols football team. As the day progressed, he found himself on the outside looking in with no chance of making it back after he was kicked off the team.
The Tennessee Volunteers reportedly kicked the wide receiver off the team after he recorded himself blasting the entire coaching staff for being ‘snakes’ and ‘weak’ at their job.
“In consultation with vice chancellor/director of athletics John Currie, I have made the decision to dismiss Jauan from our program,” interim head coach Brady Hoke said in a statement. “Representing the University of Tennessee football program is a privilege.”
On Wednesday, Jaujaun posted a video on his Instagram heavily criticizing the coaching staff in an expletive-filled rant, with cursing and derogatory name-calling throughout.
“The coaching staff is holding us back,” Jennings said. “Please, Tennessee send us a great-(expletive) coaching staff.”
Jennings said he went to practice on Wednesday with hopes of playing against Vanderbilt on Saturday, going into a rant about how much he hates the Commodores.
Then he turned back to the coaches, calling them fake, snakes and accusing them of lying.
“It ain’t nothing to do with no players,” Jennings said. “It ain’t nothing to do with no (expletive) injuries (expletive). It’s straight (expletive) coaching.”
Jennings has not played since dislocating his wrist in the season opener against Georgia Tech, and after being booted from the squad, he’ll likely never play for the Vols again.
Jennings made 40 receptions for 580 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore last season.
