Student assistant coach at Texas A&M, Kevin Sumlin, has been removed from the football program after shoving players from West Virginia University during the Autozone Liberty Bowl on Monday.

Richardson’s conduct was reviewed by coach Kevin Sumlin, who took swift action and dismissed Richardson from his post quickly. Sumlin said in an apology to anyone offended by the sideline scuffle, “On behalf of the Texas A&M football program, I want to apologize to Darryl Worley and to Andrew Buie as well as to Coach Holgorsen and the West Virginia family for the inexcusable actions of the student assistant.”

Sumlin went on to say, “I also want to apologize to the Aggie faithful, as they deserve a program to be proud of, not only in our play, but in the integrity and respect we show on and off the field. Richardson’s action are not representative of our program.”

Richardson was aware of the upset caused by his punches and pushes. He took to Twitter to address the situation and apologize. In his Tweet he wrote, “ In the heat of the moment of yesterday’s game I did lose myself with everything going on. To the players involved I do apologies (sic) for the ignorance I displayed and there was nothing personal with the actions I made on that sideline yesterday. To the school, fans, and friends of WVU my actions were uncalled for and it was very disrespectful to y’all and the game I love so dearly. And for every Aggie I let down I know that is not how an Aggie acts no if ands or bits about it.”
