WATCH: Hawaii assistant coach gets injured doing chest bump with massive defensive lineman

Hawaii linebackers coach Sean Duggan made a mistake last weekend. In fact, it was a huge one.

During the Rainbow Warriors’ 41-18 win over Western Carolina last Saturday, there were points when Duggan was understandably quite excited about what was transpiring on the field. But at one point, when Hawaii blocked a punt, Duggan may have taken it just one step too far.

He tried to chest bump defensive lineman Viane Moala, who is listed at 6-foot-7, 270 pounds.

And the results were not good. In fact, Duggan sustained a dislocated wrist and a fractured elbow during the collision. Take a look at how it happened, courtesy of this video from “The Nick Rolovich Show.”

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Rolovich, Hawaii’s head coach, per Hawaii News Now. “You advise against chest-bumping a 6-foot-7, 300lb. Tongan. That’s just — as a new haole guy on the island, that’s just not something you should make a habit,”
It’s certainly something that Duggan likely won’t try again during Hawaii’s matchup with UCLA this Saturday.
