Legendary UH quarterback Colt Brennan dies at 37 – Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu, Hawaii 2021-05-18 12:45:22 –

The record-breaking University of Hawaii quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist Colt Brennan have died, his father Terry Brennan told the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

Brennan, 37, was five months in an inpatient rehabilitation facility when she was found unconscious a few days ago. He died Monday at Hoag Hospital in Newport, California.

“He was really (well) doing,” Brennan’s father, Terry Brennan, told Star Advertiser. “These guys were nonsense. It’s far from him. I don’t know any other way to explain it. I might be able to explain it better someday.”

Elder Brennan said his son “went in peace” and was surrounded by his family and Bob Marley’s music was playing near him.

Brennan led the Rainbow Warriors to the 12-0 regular season in 2007. He set several passing records and was invited to New York as one of the four Heisman Trophy finalists. He finished third in the vote.

He returned to UH for the senior season. This cemented his legendary position among Rainbow Warrior fans and was named Washington in the 2008 draft.

Brennan’s short NFL career suffered injuries and had left the league by 2010.

He was seriously injured in a head-on collision on the Queen Kaahumanu Highway in Kona on November 19, 2010.

In recent years he has had small scratches on the law due to alcohol abuse.

He was arrested twice in Kona last year. On August 1, at the Kona Seaside Hotel, after receiving a request from the manager, it was alleged that it caused a turmoil and refused to leave the site.

Police described him as “terribly drunk” when he was detained.

The charges were later dismissed.

On November 18, he was arrested at his home in Kailua-Kona on Wednesday night and charged with chaotic behavior, police said.

The co-resident told police that Brennan woke him up by hitting the door in his chair around 7:30 pm. When Brennan entered the room, he apparently stumbled upon his roommate and laid both on the floor.

Brennan was described as “very drunk and uncooperative” by arresting police officers, police said.

He was acquitted on the charges and was to appear in the Kona District Court on June 7.
