Deion Sanders Offered Colorado Head-Coaching Job

Written by Tony Ghaul

Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who is currently the Head Coach at Jackson State, has been offered the Head-Coaching job at Colorado and has interest in the job, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

Sanders’ track record at Jackson State has been impressive. Taking over a team that went 4-8 the year before he arrived, Sanders went 4-3 in the COVID-shortened 2020 season, then went 11-2 in 2021 and is 11-0 so far this season.

Once a national powerhouse, Colorado has fallen on hard times recently. The Buffaloes are 1-10 this year and have finished below .500 in 16 of the last 17 seasons.

Despite having success at Jackson State, Sanders has been bypassed for Power 5 gigs in the last couple years, including his alma mater Florida State. The legendary former defensive back is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
