In-game injury: UCF coach Gus Malzahn confirms broken leg

UCF coach Gus Malzahn sustained a broken leg when he was inadvertently tackled on a play during the Knights’ win over Tulane, he confirmed Monday.

He showed up to work on crutches and told reporters he had a fractured tibia. After the 14-10 victory on Saturday, he called the incident “embarrassing.”

The play occurred during the first quarter when he was run into by a Tulane defender, and UCF medical staff members were seen tending to him. He was fitted with a knee brace and coached the rest of the game.

The Knights are 6-3 in their first year with Malzahn, the former Auburn coach, on the sideline. They will face SMU (7-2) on the road Saturday.
