Was glad to see they did the right thing here….
Check it out:
Texas A&M University football student assistant Michael Richardson was sent packing early Monday after he was caught hitting at least one West Virginia student during the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee.
Video captured Richardson appearing to elbow one West Virginia player then hitting another on the back of the head. It happened as unsuccessful plays on the field resulted in the players ending up on the sidelines, where Richardson stood.
Richardson, a 2012 graduate and former linebacker for Texas A&M, was forced to end his college football career in November 2012 because of a neck injury he suffered while playing Sam Houston University. He has served as a student assistant coach since his injury.
A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin was later told of what happened and sent Richardson to the locker room for the remainder of the game, A&M athletic department spokesman Brad Marquardt told the Associated Press.
