Maui football coach suspended after knocking over opposing player

LAHAINA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The head football coach at Kamehameha School's Maui campus has been suspended by school officials after apparently knocking over a player from an opposing team during a game last Saturday.

A witness at the game sent in footage from the game to our newsroom, which appears to show coach Cody Nakamura knocking over Maui High School's Andre Pierman during a kickoff return in the second quarter.

Kamehameha athletics director Blane Gaison wouldn't comment on the length of the suspension, citing the need for the school to continue to review the incident.

The Warriors have a bye this week and play King Kekaulike next Friday.
