LSU’s director of player personnel and three-time Super Bowl champion Kevin Faulk was allegedly involved in an altercation following his team’s loss to Texas A&M.

ESPN reported the following details about the incident from late Saturday night:

An LSU spokesman alleged that the man involved in the scuffle with Faulk punched LSU special assistant Steve Kragthorpe in the chest. Kragthorpe, who was once the offensive coordinator for the Tigers, has Parkinson’s disease and a pacemaker.

The spokesman said the team would gather more information before commenting further on the situation.

The man involved in the scuffle with Faulk was seen approaching Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher in the team tunnel after the game to inform him of the altercation. Fisher told reporters after the game that he was not aware of the scuffle and “had no idea” what happened.

An extremely short video on YouTube shows part of the altercation, but it’s unclear what the hell is going on.

Photographer Hilary Scheinuk captured an amazing shot of the altercation, and Faulk can be seen entangled with a young male, who is also credentialed to be on the field. According to Scheinuk’s caption, Faulk and the unidentified man “throw punches” during the alleged altercation. Check out the wild photo below.

This is just a bad look all the way around. Obviously, we don’t know all the specifics for sure at this time, and it appears LSU is taking the firm stance that Faulk was defending a former Tigers coach.

There is also a video on Twitter of the young man informing Jimbo Fisher of the fight, and the A&M head coach is clearly shocked to hear whatever he’s being told. (RELATED: The Latest AP College Football Poll Has Arrived. Does Number Two Surprise You?)

Emotions were running high after the big win, and something clearly happened between the A&M staffer and the LSU crew at the game. That much is not up for debate at this point with all the video evidence.

It’s going to take some time for both of these schools to conduct investigations and come to a conclusion. Here’s what I do know for sure. The Aggies 74-72 win over the LSU Tigers was one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen played. You just didn’t want it to stop. There were seven overtimes! Seven!

It’s too bad this blemish on the game had to happen, but it doesn’t offset just how awesome of a show that was to close out the regular season.
