Texas A&M is leading West Virginia 28-27 at the half of the Liberty Bowl, but the story of the first half has been the foul play of one Texas A&M staff member on the sideline. Multiple shots of this as-of-now-unnamed staff member have been going viral on Twitter in which he is shown roughing up two different West Virginia players as the play took them onto the Texas A&M sideline.

There is this shot of the Aggies staff member throwing a punch to the back of the head of West Virginia cornerback Daryll Worley

And there is this shot of the same staff member throwing an elbow at West Virginia running back Andrew Buie

Ohio State head coach Woody Hayes was once fired for taking a swipe at a Clemson football player. The fate of this Texas A&M staffer should probably follow that path, because this is simply inexcusable.

UPDATE (4:24 p.m. ET): Texas A&M issued a release saying head coach Kevin Sumlin was made aware of the incidents in question. The staffer in question is said to be student assistant Michael Richardson, and Richardson will remain in the locker room for the second half.
