San Jose State senior linebacker Vince Buhagiar will miss the season after having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, coach Ron Caragher said Tuesday.

Buhagiar, a Clayton Valley High product, had the surgery Monday -- his second shoulder surgery since the end of the 2011 season. He will redshirt this season and return as a fifth-year senior in 2014.

"The great news of that is we've got a veteran, proven three-year starter back at that position for 2014," Caragher said.

Buhagiar had surgery on his left shoulder after the 2011 season, in which he struggled and was limited to three starts. He had 89 tackles and three sacks last season as a middle linebacker and was a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection.

Buhagiar was switching positions this season from middle to outside linebacker where he would have had more of a role as a pass rusher in the Spartans' 3-4 alignment.

Buhagiar was part of a 2010 recruiting class that has played a major role in San Jose State's resurgence. He started as a true freshman that season, recording a team-high 10 tackles in the season opener against defending national champion Alabama. He finished that year with 89 tackles and was a Phil Steele third-team freshman All-American.
