Default coolant leak in 1996 jeep cherokee sport 4.0

Hi, Just am so fricken confused I don't understand this car at all. I took it in after it overheated last week im assuming that the thermostat stuck or there was an air buble in radiator cause coolant sprayed all over everything under the hood. Had it towed in and the guy told me a head gasket I honestly don't believe him. I was able to get it back home and it was running fine no white around oil cap and no coolant smell out of exhaust. Today I replaced my fan clutch becasue it was bad and also replaced thermostat and gasket. I also wanted to burp radiator. I began to poor coolant into radiator and the coolant just leaked like crazy it seems like it is in the lower part I was thinking the lower rad hose but it doesn't seem like it is coming from there. I also replaced the water pump in the fall. I am clueless any help would be greatly appreciated at this point.

If the water pump goes bad, there is a weep hole that will spray coolant all over the engine bay. I would look under the pulley and see what's up.
