FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP) - Mike Shula was working with quarterback
John Parker Wilson again Monday, putting him through passing drills
and giving him instruction. Just like old times.
The former Alabama coach is part of the Jacksonville Jaguars
staff that is leading the South team for the Senior Bowl, and the
job includes tutoring his former recruit.
Shula repeatedly said he has "moved on" from that difficult
end to his first head coaching job. He's still getting a week-long
walk down memory lane with four of his former players manning the
South team - Wilson, center Antoine Caldwell, tight end Travis
McCall and safety Rashad Johnson.
Shula was surrounded by cameras and tape recorders on his return
to the state where he once held the most high-profile coaching job
and for a change drew far more media attention than his boss,
Jaguars and South head coach Jack Del Rio.
Shula also said he doesn't spend time thinking about returning
to college football or landing another head coaching job.
