The University of Tennessee dismissed wide receiver Jauan Jennings from the team on Wednesday evening -- just hours after the junior went on a tirade against the current coaching staff and posted it to his social media accounts:

The Murfreesboro native and former Blackman prep football and basketball player reportedly went off earlier in the day at the staff in videos posted to his Instagram account.

Jennings was somewhat of a surprise return to practice recently as it was expected he was going to miss the rest of the season after being injured in season opener against Georgia Tech. Jennings enter the year as an All-SEC third team selection in the preseason but was limited to just three catches for 17 yards the first half of the Vols' first game.

Jennings could transfer to another school as he has a redshirt year available and likely would be able to receive a medical redshirt as well. Declaring for the NFL Draft seems the more likely scenario however but one thing is for certain: a return to Tennessee doesn't look like it's in the cards after Wednesday's actions on both sides.
