The credentialed member of the Texas A&M sideline, who was involved in a fight with LSU director of player development Kevin Faulk on Saturday, has reportedly been identified as head coach Jimbo Fisher’s nephew Cole Fisher.
The fight, which can be seen in the video below, took place after Fisher allegedly punched LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, and has a pacemaker.

“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.”
Sounds like a setup on Jimbo’s part. He must have sent his nephew to start throwing hands at LSU’s coaching staff after the game. It sounds like the nephew didn’t get the abort mission call once the Aggies won the game.
