Two college assistant football coaches who were apparently wrestling with each other fell through a Nashville, Tenn., double-paned hotel window this morning morning and fell four stories to a concrete sidewalk, leaving one in serious condition, the Associated Press reports.
As the American Football Coaches Association is holding its annual convention at the Opryland Hotel — the site where former Cal Lutheran coach Bob Shoup was honored for induction into the NAIA Hall of Fame last weekend — hotel security had been called around 4:10 a.m. with a noise complaint when officers found a broken window.
Scott Coy, a 6-foot-2 and 300 pound co-offensive coordinator at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa., and Darren DeMeio, a 6-4, 220-pound running backs coach at the same college, were discovered outside on the ground below.
“They wrestled each other too close to the window going through it and down to the ground floor,” Nashville police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said. “That’s four floors.”
Coy, 29, was in critical condition and having surgery Tuesday afternoon at Vanderbilt
University. DeMeio, 24, was listed in fair condition but remained in the hospital.
