Jackson State Football Coach, Deion Sanders, Accepts Head Coaching Position at PWI - University of Colorado...
Posted By: Will Moss on December 04, 2022

Jackson State, an HBCU in the SWAC Football conference was rolling in momentum with head coach Deion Sanders at the helm. But the news was just recently dropped that Sanders will be leaving Jackson State for a coaching position at a PWI.

Not sure if this is a good or bad move for Sanders, but the spotlight on Jackson State will likely fade out without the presence of the former NFL superstar as head coach.

Prime Time Deion Sanders just shocked the entire footballing community after announcing his decision to leave the Jackson State University coaching job. Sanders accepted the head coaching position at PAC-12’s bottom place, the University of Colorado Boulder. This came shortly after the Jackson State Tigers repeated their amazing feat from last year.

JSU beat Southern 43-24 to win their second South Western Athletic Championship in consecutive years for the first time since 1995 and 1996. The 11-0 Jackson State achieved a historic milestone when they set a perfect regular season record for the first time in the school’s history. However, the world wasn’t expecting Prime Time Sanders to leave without winning the SWAC hat-trick. But it has happened.

Jackson State fans and announcers didn’t take lightly to the breaking news that followed their championship success. Sanders and the LSU locker room were robbed mid-game in the 2021 season. So fans might always had it out for the HC. And after the latest announcement, they didn’t hold back. Including the announcers.

Deion Sanders may have left the Tigers fans upset over his decision, but they can’t deny the complete turnaround Prime Time brought with him when he joined his two sons, Shedeur and Shilo Sanders, at JSU in 2020.



QB Shedeur was the league’s Offensive Players of the Year this season and put on a show on Saturday against Southern. And Deion didn’t even have to recruit him.
Deion Sanders can bring Colorado to the level of JSU by recruiting the right talent

JSU’s back-to-back SWAC titles are a thing of wonder and amazement for the Tigers’ fan base. However, this is not a new feeling for their former head coach, Deion Prime Time Sanders. Sanders went one step ahead and won two back-to-back Super Bowls in 1994 and 1995 with the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys. So it’s no surprise to see that he has an eye for spotting talent. Some experts and fans agreed.

19 out of Jackson State’s 20 top recruits in the last two championship years came in the Prime Time era. And Deion is expected to carry his recruiting skills over to Colorado, who are currently at their worst numbers in school history with a 1-11 overall record. They have been in only 2 bowl games since 2008 and have been a below .500 team in 15 of their last 17 seasons. Previous CBU coach Mel Tucker left after just one year. However, no challenge is too big for 8x Pro Bowler Deion Sanders.

Deion Sanders’ decision to leave the HBCU came under some criticism from the experts. Many think the 9-3 Florida State Seminoles was the perfect destination for Prime Time, who was an All-American elite cornerback for Florida in his pre-NFL days. However, Neon-Deion wants to see more black coaches representing Power 5 programs. “It’s been four or more African American head coaches at the next level that has been terminated [FBS level]. I haven’t heard not one other than a candidate like myself to replace them. So to me, that’s a problem,” Sanders said in his announcement to his JSU players.
