2011 Georgia Spring Practice: Hines Ward, Mike Smith Featured At Coaching Clinic

From March 31 to April 1, the Georgia Bulldogs will host their annual spring football coaching clinic. This year’s biggest guest names are Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward, along with former Dawgs Kevin Butler and Richard Seymour.

Championship-winning high school football coaches will be featured, two practices will be up for viewing, and various coaching implements will be distributed. It’ll also mean a look at those new Butts-Mehre facility upgrades, which may lead to some attendees finding themselves recruited by the impossible allure of Mark Richt’s Swag Pad.

Pretty much just writing about this because Smith is aboard. And because it’s February, which feels like 16 years away from September.

The Falcons coaching staff is becoming more UGA by the day, with Smith working in Athens and Bob Bratkowski, son of Dawgs great Zeke Bratkowski, coming on as Matt Ryan’s quarterback coach. Having Seymour in Flowery Branch would be nice too, while we’re at it.
