Texas A&M issues statement regarding reports Jimbo Fisher's nephew punched LSU analyst
Texas A&M and LSU played a seven-overtime classic Saturday night that will be talked about by college football fans for years to come. But it is an ugly incident after the game has dominated the Sunday discussion.
After the game, photo and video were widely shared on social media showing a man with a Texas A&M credential fighting with LSU Director of Player Development Kevin Faulk, who was retaliating for the man punching LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe.
Sunday morning, the man was identified as Cole Fisher, nephew of Jimbo Fisher. Texas A&M has now issued a statement confirming that the Aggies have an undergraduate football student manager named Cole Fisher. The school would not confirm he was involved in the reported altercation or even confirm his relation to Jimbo Fisher.
Jimbo Fisher’s brother Bryan Fisher mentions a son named Cole in a 2014 profile.
The Texas A&M athletic department sent out a statement saying there is an undergraduate football student manager named Cole Fisher. They could not confirm whether he was person involved in the post-game skirmish with LSU staffers or if he has any relation to HC Jimbo Fisher.
