Instagram post leads to Tennessee booting WR Jauan Jennings from team

Nathanael Rutherford of Rocky Top Insider described Jennings' live video on his private Instagram account as "a profanity-laced tirade against Vols' coaches".

Jennings was Tennessee's leading returning receiver entering the season and was poised to play a key role before his injury.

"Please, Tennessee, send us a great coaching staff", Jennings said in part of the video.

To be clear, Jennings did not make a smart decision here. Granted, Jones had been on the hot seat and needed players like Jennings to step up and deliver.

In a statement, Vols interim coach Brady Hoke said he made the decision "in consultation with" athletic director John Currie.

"Representing the University of Tennessee football program is a privilege", Hoke concluded. And heading into next year, he figures to be a major leader.

"The coaching staff is holding us back", Jennings said.
