Louisiana Tech linebacker Brevin Randle suspended after stomping on opposing player’s head

Brevin Randle of Louisiana Tech was "suspended indefinitely" for stomping on the head of an unarmed Bulldogs player on Friday night.

Brevin Randle has been suspended indefinitely as a result of the incident during Friday night's game against UTEP, Louisiana Tech athletic director Eric Wood said in a statement released Saturday night. 

"Coach [Sonny] Cumbie and I met with Brevin Randle today and informed him of the suspension," Wood said.

Senior redshirt Randle rammed his body into UTEP offensive lineman Steven Hubbard, who was already lying face down on the ground.

The Texas native then stood up and viscously stomped on his head as he gyrated in pain.

Wood said Randle’s disregard for his opponent’s safety and his unbecoming conduct, falling below his program’s standards, led to the suspension.

“Our University, athletic department, and football program believe in culture, class, and competitive excellence and in no way was that displayed in that moment,” Wood said.

UTEP head coach Dana Dimel said the officiating crew owned up to their mistake later in the game.
