Wide receiver Hines Ward recently retired from the NFL, but that doesn't mean he's going to fade off into the sunset. He's already got plans for his next move, and it may involve coaching. No, not just coaching any team—he wants to become a coach for the Georgia Bulldogs.
I always say that if I wanted to get back into coaching, the University of Georgia would probably be my first place. Just because I want to give back to my university and I feel like I have a lot to offer the state of Georgia and to the kids. Because I’ve been in their shoes before.
Ward played four seasons for the Bulldogs, from 1994-1997, and racked up over 1,000 receiving yards and 18 total touchdowns at quarterback and wide receiver. Of course, it's way too soon to begin talking about this actually happening, but Ward is already missing the game that has been his life the past several years.
I miss the competitive nature. There’s nothing that I can do now that can replace the competitive nature that football gives you. Where you can be at the ultimate high in two minutes and maybe five seconds later be at the all-time low.
With his aggressive playing style, it would be really interesting to see how he turns out as a coach. Of course, that's if it ever does happen.
