Hawaii Football Assistant Dislocated Elbow, Broke Wrist Celebrating Blocked Kick

A member of the Hawaii football coaching staff will be making the trip to the Rose Bowl for this weekend’s game against UCLA, despite suffering multiple injuries in the team’s season opener.
Sean Duggan, the Rainbow Warriors’ linebackers coach, suffered a dislocated elbow and fractured wrist after celebrating a blocked kick with Viane Moala.
Duggan celebrated by jumping into the air and colliding with the 6-foot-7, 300-pounder. He struck his arm on Moala’s helmet and quickly realized something went terribly wrong.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” head coach Nick Rolovich, via Hawaii News Now. “You advise against chest-bumping a six-foot-seven, 300lb. Tongan. That’s just – as a new haole guy on the island, that’s just not something you should make a habit.
“He’ll be in a sling for a while. He’ll never forget it. He’s a young coach, but I know I’ll never let him forget it.”
At least the Rainbow Warriors are having some fun with it. And how could you not, when an assistant coach suffers pretty serious injuries celebrating a play? Duggan will never live that one down.
Hopefully he can avoid making contact with any 300-pounders on Saturday night.
Kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. ET on the Pac-12 Network.
