Inverness Caley boss Terry Butcher and Dundee United assistant Darren Jackson are facing disciplinary charges after a clash on Tuesday.
The Scottish Football Association compliance officer has issued notices of complaint against the pair after an incident in the Scottish League Cup quarter-final.
Caledonian Thistle won 2-1 after extra-time in an encounter that exploded after an off-the-ball incident in which United winger Gary Mackay-Steven was apparently fouled by Richie Foran.
In the resulting melee Nadir Ciftci was deemed to have raised his hands to Thistle's Graeme Shinnie and a match-official, while Butcher and Jackson squared up at the technical area.
Ciftci is facing disciplinary charges for that incident, while Butcher and Jackson have been issued with notices of complaint under rule 203, which covers "misconduct at a match by failing to behave in a responsible manner as an occupant of the technical area by leaving the technical area in the absence of special circumstances and by acting in an aggressive manner towards players of the opposing team."
The pair have until 8 November to respond to the notice of complaint, or face a hearing on 21 November should they wish.
