NFL legend Hines Ward might not be done with football ... telling TMZ Sports he would LOVE the chance to be the head coach for the Georgia Bulldogs ... saying it would be his "dream job."
Ward -- who played at UGA from '94 to '97 -- was at LAX when we asked about the rumors that he's interested in running a program down in Athens.
"If the opportunity presented itself, it would be a dream job," Ward said.
And get this ... as far as pay goes, Ward says he'd do it relatively cheap compared to heavy hitters like Nick Saban.
"I don't need the Saban money ... I'd just do it for the love of my University."
