Texas A&M has not publicly released the identity its staffer who was involved in the scuffle. The staffer had a game credential.
There are multiple reports that say the man was Cole Fisher, the nephew of Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher.
According to The Daily Advertiser, Faulk and the staffer got into the fight after the staffer allegedly punched LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Kragthorpe told the Louisiana website, the punch came out of nowhere and he was struck in the pacemaker.
He said that the entire incident began when Texas A&M wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig approached LSU coaches immediately after the game.

"Dameyune Craig started the whole thing," Kragthorpe told The Advertiser. "Just trash talking and yelling and screaming a bunch of crap."
Craig was on LSU’s staff two years ago, but was fired by current head coach Ed Orgeron.
Southeastern Conference officials have not commented on the fight, but said they have been in contact with both schools.
