Mike Shula was working with quarterback John Parker Wilson again Monday, putting him through passing drills and giving him both 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.
