HOUSTON (AP) - A University of Houston athletic department official says the school will end its contract with a security company after reviewing video of one of the guards hitting a fan in the head area following the Cougars win over Temple.

Associate athletic director of communications David Bassity on Sunday said the decision to sever ties with CSC was made after reviewing video of the Saturday night incident. He said no decision has been made about possible legal action against the company.

Bassity said the school’s police department, which is investigating the incident, has spoken with the man who was hit.

CSC officials did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

CSC’s website says the company has provided crowd management to the Houston area since 1999.
