Back in 2012, Florida softball coach Tim Walton released Sami Fagan and Kasey Fagan from the Florida program after an altercation. Five years later, Auburn’s Haley Fagan confronted that same coach.
After Auburn’s 1-0 win over Florida on Monday, Fagan didn’t have her hand up in the postgame handshake. As a result, Walton made the handshake motion into Fagan’s shoulder, and she than pushed back.
The Florida coach immediately turned and had words for Fagan as tempers began to flare.
Fagan walked away from Walton and exchanged more words with Florida players who shouted at her. Eventually, Fagan’s teammates intervened and directed her off the field.
