Jauan Jennings has been kicked off the Tennessee Volunteers football team. He reportedly ripped the coaching staff in a profanity-laced Instagram post.

Interim head coach Brady Hoke said it’s a privilege to represent the Volunteers. He also said he made the decision along with athletic director John Currie, who is in his first-year running the athletic department.

“It was a little bit of a surprise I think to everybody, me included,” Hoke said. “But after talking to John Currie and consulting with him, I know what the right thing to do is for our football team. That’s why we made that decision.”

In the social media post, Jennings used “lying,” “fake,” and “snake” when describing the coaching staff. He even insists that the coaching staff was “holding him back.”

The Volunteers have been a mess this season. This is the latest that the team has had to go through. Butch Jones was fired by Currie on November 12th.

Hoke, who was in his first-year as the team’s defensive line coach, was named the interim head coach by Currie once Jones was let go.

Jennings was the team’s returning wide receiver beginning the season. But the junior has not played since the season-opener double-overtime 42-41 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

He suffered a wrist injury in the game. Former head coach, Jones, said in September that Jennings would be out for the season.
