Deion Sanders and Alabama State Head Coach have bitter exchange in heated post-game handshake

Jackson State Head Coach Deion Sanders’ handshake with Alabama State coach Eddie Robinson Jr. turned nasty after the Tigers’ 26-12 road victory on Saturday.

Sanders, whose team is now 5-0 and 3-0 in the SWAC, walked across the field to exchange handshakes. However, Sanders went to deliver a warmer greeting Robinson Jr. brushed off Sanders and turned and walked away.

Sanders was caught off-guard by the moment.

Sanders made a comment this week suggesting that Alabama State would regret scheduling his team for homecoming, which could have been why Robinson reacted the way he did.
