ATHENS, Ga. -- Former Georgia players visit the Bulldogs’ football practices on a fairly regular basis, but Mark Richt’s coaches hosted an ex-Bulldog for a special purpose on Tuesday.

Hines Ward -- who retired from the NFL exactly a week ago following a 14-year, Hall of Fame-caliber career with the Pittsburgh Steelers -- is shadowing Georgia’s staff to see whether coaching appeals to him as a next career step.

Ward was dressed in the same UGA wind shirt, shorts and hat as Georgia’s coaches would wear at the typical practice on Tuesday, although he didn’t take part in the actual instruction.
