Georgia State head coach Shawn Elliott is not a muted guy. He doesn't patrol the sidelines with a demeanor akin to Mike Riley, Bill Snyder or Lovie Smith. And there was no exception during the Panthers' loss to NC State in Week 2.
Three minutes into Georgia State's eventual 41-7 loss, the Panthers scored on an eight-yard run by Destin Coates to take the 7-0 lead:
Not caught on camera was Elliott celebrating the early lead with an "aggressive fist bump" that led to a biceps tear.
"Georgia State HC Shawn Elliott told us he tore his right bicep in an aggressive fist bump after their TD at NC State last week," ESPN reporter Olivia Harlan Dekker tweeted on Wednesday. "[W]ill need surgery next week. He laughed telling us he isn't stoic on the sideline."
While not violent as Hawai'i linebackers coach Sean Duggan dislocating his shoulder and breaking his wrist attempting to chest bump a 6-foot-7, 290-pound lineman, a biceps tear is still a brutal injury, though one likely to happen eventually for the excitable Elliott.
