In case you were concerned, Curt Yaeger's not exactly easing his way into retirement.

Yaeger retired as volleyball coach of the Jefferson City Lady Jays in January after a 21-year career. And while he stepped away from the team, he hasn't left the sport behind.

That's because Yaeger recently found out he is one of 10 people selected for a Special Olympics Coaching Fellowship, and he will spend 10 days in Serbia starting Saturday.
