Former Nevada GA joins UH staff

Makana Garrigan, who served as a Nevada graduate assistant coach in 2015, is joining the Warriors’ coaching staff as an intern.

Garrigan will be the third intern on Nick Rolovoch’s first staff, joining former Warriors John Estes and Marc Moody.

Garrigan, a graduate of Case Grande High, was recruited to Nevada as a wide receiver. But his playing career was abbreviated because of injuries. He then served as a student assistant for three seasons through the 2014 season before being promoted to graduate assistant last year.

His father is from Laie.

    I’m late to the party as usual, welcome back fearless leader. Rolo and Co. will need your help in raising the excitement level heading into spring practice.

    Welcome to UH, Mr. Garrigan. Likely related to former Kahuku HS and Utah Ute player, Afa Garrigan?

    Another storm coming?

    I feel like a bear awakening from hibernation.

  11. al March 26, 2016 2:29 pm

    Great to see you back on the beat.
    It’s amazing how the SA did not pick up the huge void created by your brief hiatus.

    ha — good point!

    I have no idea, but assumed ( and that’s bad ) that he did enroll after leaving USC

    understand he was a good student at Punahou so academics should not be a problem — best not to assume, ever!!

    nice to see you back al — long winter

    your “birdies” been busy or tending the nest?

    What an epic MVB match! That game was not good for my blood pressure.

    Mr. A-house – I heard Tuileta was at WCC.

    Here is wishing a great Easter Joliday to Steven and fam and all his loyal followers-best wishes to Coach Rolovich his staff and of course the Team for a Great Spring as they journey to restore our program to the place it belongs and should be!
    Go Warriors!!!!!

    How come Nick Nelson wants to transfer ? He was the leader in passes defended last year, with 15 passes defended, or 34.8 % of the team total.

  26. Stephen Tsai March 27, 2016 8:51 am

    He wants to be closer to the East Coast.
