Video shows A&M assistant charging at LSU coaches

CBS Sports

There's a new twist in the Texas A&M-LSU postgame fight saga, and this one involves a coach with ties to both teams. Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated received video of the lead-up to the incident that shows Aggies wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig sprinting across the field in the seconds after his team won the seven-overtime thriller 74-72.

Craig sprints toward LSU coach Ed Orgeron, whom he worked with in 2016 at LSU, and near quarterback Joe Burrow. During the short video, a man reported to be Cole Fisher — Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher's nephew — is working to restrain Craig from going further into the Tigers bench.

Craig played quarterback for Fisher when Fisher was the offensive coordinator at Auburn, and he has coached with Fisher at LSU, Florida State and Texas A&M

Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle obtained video that then shows LSU assistant Steve Kragthorpe moving toward Craig and Cole Fisher, at which time Fisher appears to push him in an effort to keep the two coaches away from each other. Zwerneman later posted a video of the subsequent fracas in which Fisher is confronted by Tigers staffer and former running back Kevin Faulk and is punched by Tigers defensive back John Battle IV.
