Hawaii coaches Dave Aranda and Rich Miano are getting a taste of NFL coaching by participating in training camp internships this week.
Aranda began his week-long stay with the Denver Broncos today. Miano will attend camp with the Cincinnati Bengals later this week.
Aranda arrived in Denver today and went straight into a day of meetings with the Broncos staff. He was invited to the internship by defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and will work with defensive line coach Mike Nunnely.
“Just to go from one meeting to the next and talk about schemes is a neat experience,” Aranda said.
Miano leaves Wednesday and will start working when the Bengals open training camp on Thursday. Dr. Edison Miyawaki, a part-owner of the Bengals, helped arrange the internship.
“Being around the pro guys and being around the team when they’re getting ready for the season will be exciting,” Miano said.
Like the Warriors, both the Broncos and Bengals run 4-3 systems, giving Aranda and Miano a chance to pick up some notes to bring back to Manoa.
Both coaches will return to Honolulu in time for the start of the Warriors’ fall camp next week.
