Vols Interim Head Coach Brady Hoke has dismissed wide receiver Jauan Jennings from the program after Jennings posted a profanity-laced Instagram video ranting about the coaching staff. "But after talking to John Currie and consulting with him, I know what the right thing to do is for our football team".

Jennings (wrist) was dismissed from the Volunteers' football program Wednesday, Mike Wilson of the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

Then he turned back to the coaches, calling them fake, snakes and accusing them of lying.

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

Tennessee football is having a rough year, and Jauan Jennings has only added to the negative headlines surrounding the program.

Tennessee (4-7, 0-7 SEC) fired coach Butch Jones on November 12. The 6-foot-3, 201-pound junior wideout is now sidelined with a season-ending wrist dislocation suffered in the opener against Georgia Tech.

Jennings went on a profanity-laced rant on his Instagram account Wednesday afternoon from his vehicle leaving practice.

The Jennings dismissal is the latest chapter in Tennessee's nightmare season.

Jennings made 40 receptions for 580 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore last season.

With a loss Saturday, Tennessee would go winless in conference for the first time since 1924 when it went 0-4 in the Southern conference.
