ATHENS, Ga. -- Eventually, Nick Jones began to interpret the same frequent question as a sign.
When he played at Georgia from 2003 to 2006, the All-SEC center intended to spend a few seasons in the NFL and then put to use his degree in risk management and insurance. Coaching football was never on the radar.
Life seldom works out exactly as planned, however.
Former UGA center Nick Jones' NFL career wasn't all he thought it'd be, so he put his college degree to work. But countless insurance clients would ask whether he'd considered coaching, so he took the bait and is now flourishing as a UGA grad assistant.
