The nephew of Texas A&M football coach Jimbo Fisher, Cole Fisher, was allegedly the previously unidentified credentialed Aggies staffer who was involved in a postgame fight with LSU director of player development Kevin Faulk after the Tigers and A&M completed their epic seven-overtime game.
The worst part of the entire deal, however, is that LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, a 53-year-old assistant who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, was allegedly punched in his pacemaker by Fisher during the altercation.
“Out of nowhere, I got nailed,” Kragthorpe said in a phone interview with the Daily Adviser. “I didn’t go down, but I clutched over. I was like, ‘Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.’ Then it started fluttering like he jostled it. I feel OK, but not as good as I was. I felt like he tore something in there. I will be seeing my neurologist in Baton Rouge on Monday.”
In case you missed it, here is video of the postgame altercation.

And the since viral photo of Fisher and Faulk coming to blows.
“We’ve been in contact with both schools, which is common after games,” SEC associate commissioner Herb Vincent said.
It was an unfortunate situation that came at the end of an incredible, historic game which resulted in a 74-72 victory for Texas A&M. Both teams will now wait for their future bowl game opponents, where hopefully they can avoid any postgame shenanigans.
