a post on another thread asked about Mason Kuo’s replacement. Haven’t heard anything yet. Tony McInerny is listed as a volunteer assistant. Don’t know if it means he’d be first in line. There’s a lot of good people out there. Haven’t spoken with Mason. It sounds like this may be because of family reasons. believe his wife is originally from the Big Island.

UH offensive tackle Laupepa Letuli and linebacker Aaron Brown will not make the trip for the Warriors’ Western Athletic Conference opener at Louisiana Tech.
Letuli injured his left knee while working out in the weight room during the team’s break from practice this week. Adrian Thomas and Kainoa LaCount have been working at right tackle in his absence.
Brown has been struggling with a hamstring injury since fall camp.
>> Defensive end John Fonoti worked with the first unit in his first day in pads since returning from a knee injury. He ended the morning soaked in water and Gatorade. Rocky Savaiigaea and Tuika Tufaga emptied the jugs on him to celebrate his birthday.
>> Eliott Purcell, coming off a solid game at UNLV, was first in the rotation at the other end.
>> Punt returner Ryan Henry has missed the last two practices with a tight hamstring.
>> Arizona transfer Kaniela Tuipulotu has been cleared to practice with the scout team. The defensive tackle is coming back from a shoulder injury and is sitting out this season due to transfer rules. “I’m just trying to get out there and try to help them get a look,” Tuipulotu said.
