Hawaii linebackers coach Sean Duggan is coaching through pain this week.
During Hawaii’s 41-18 defeat of Western Carolina on Saturday, Duggan jumped to celebrate a blocked kick with defensive lineman Viane Moala. One problem: Moala is 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds. Duggan is, uh, not.
“You advise against chest-bumping a 6-7, 300-pound Tongan,” head coach Nick Rolovich said on his weekly show. “It’s a hard lesson to learn but he’ll get through it.”
Duggan suffered a dislocated elbow and a broken wrist in his fall to the Aloha Stadium turf, which you can see below. He’ll still travel with the team to UCLA this week, though. “He’ll be in a sling for a while,” Rolovich said.
