Most of you know Deion Sanders as the very brash, outspoken, and flashy cornerback who played in the NFL for a few teams but most notably for the Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys. He recently left the NFL Network where he was an analyst for them for a number of years. He has some coaching experience but not a lot, he was the offensive coordinator at Trinity High School where his son Shadeur was the quarterback but his son committed to play at Florida Atlantic University but that was before his father became a head coach.
News on the Sanders hire has been all over the place today. HBCU Sports’ Kenn Rashad was the first to break the news this afternoon. Per his report, the move is expected to be announced on Monday morning. He was previously reported to be a candidate for the position on August 31.
This is a great move for HBCU’s across the country with a name as big as his coming to coach there that could do a lot for recruiting bigger named high school stars to come play at a HBCU now. Personally, I think this will do wonders for Jackson St. They will definitely see more funding coming to their school and better athletes also.
How do you think Deion will do as a coach?
