Fresh off retiring from the NFL after a 14-year career, former Georgia Bulldogs WR Hines Ward attended the school's spring practice, telling Coachingsearch.com that he would be interested in becoming a coach at his alma mater:
Ward said, "Bobo wanted to bring me out here to see the guys and stuff like that. Who knows? I've always said if I ever wanted to coach, this would probably be the first place I'd like to that. So I'm still lobbying Coach Richt to give me a job (laughs)."
Could we see you out here coaching someday? "One day. No time soon. One day. Coaching is easy for me. And for me, I think I have a lot to give back to my alma mater and I want to see the Georgia Bulldogs win a national championship."
Ward would seem like a natural fit to become a coach, as he turned average athletic ability at 6'0 205 into a Hall of Fame caliber career in the NFL through hard work and football IQ.
His professional fame would almost certainly help him on the recruiting trail as well.
