Hines Ward, who recently retired after fourteen years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, returned to his alma mater this week to watch the Georgia Bulldogs practice.
The four-time All-Pro and two-time Super Bowl champions hinted that he actually wouldn't mind getting into coaching.
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."
"Coaching is easy for me," said Ward.
"I want to see the Georgia Bulldogs win a national championship. Any experience or knowledge that I can give to the football team to help that get to that goal, then so be it."
By the looks of it, Ward does seem to have the ability to clearly teach how to run a curl route.
