Ward ponders idea of coaching at Georgia
Hines Ward carved out a stellar career as a wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, before announcing his retirement last week.
But Ward may be considering another chapter of football in his life - perhaps coaching. Ward told an Atlanta TV station earlier this year that coaching at Georgia would be "my ultimate dream job."
Ward, according to the Athens, Ga., Banner-Herald, was at spring practice for his alma mater, the University of Georgia, on Tuesday and observing the goings-on with a possible eye to see whether or not coaching on the college level might be appealing in some capacity.
"He’s just trying to see if that’s something he wants to go into,” Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “He’s going to spend some time over here, a couple of days to see what all we do. Not just out there in practice, but to see, hey, what do you do out there in recruiting, kind of see if that’s something he wants to do, kind of like when coaches come and visit.”
