COLLEGE STATION, TX (WAFB) - Kevin Faulk, LSU’s director of player development, was seen in a scuffle with a credentialed Texas A&M sideline member following a seven-overtime loss for the Tigers on Saturday at Kyle Field, according to ESPN.

A photo captured by The Advocate photographer Hilary Scheinuk shows Faulk, a former LSU and NFL running back, and a man wearing a Texas A&M shirt fighting on the field as fans rushed the field after the game.

An LSU spokesman told ESPN the unidentified man punched LSU special assistant coordinator Steve Kragthorpe in the chest. Kragthorpe has Parkinson’s disease and a pacemaker.

The team is gathering more information on the incident, LSU’s spokesman said.
