B.J. Coleman was on the course at Council Fire Golf Club on Tuesday, blasting 300-yard drives with ease during the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's annual Porky's Open fundraising event.
The former McCallie School and UTC quarterback was drafted in the seventh round last Saturday by the Green Bay Packers -- pick No. 243 overall -- and his golf clubs likely will be put away for awhile starting next week. Coleman will head to Wisconsin on May 10 and begin rookie orientation camp the next day.
Other than working out and studying the West Coast offense a little, Coleman said there's not much more he can do to prepare for the start of his Packers career. He said he will get Green Bay's playbook when he joins the Packers.
"I have some West Coast film and that's a lot of the tendencies that Green Bay uses, so I've been watching that some," he said.
