Deion Sanders Announced as Next Head Coach at Jackson State University”

Deion Sanders will be the next head football coach at Jackson State, he announced Sunday on his new podcast.

Sanders is now the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas.

"I've been offered pro jobs", Sanders added, "so people know I could be an assistant in any college".

The Southwestern Athletic Conference school introduced Sanders with the trademark pomp of a historically Black university.

The excitement and electricity resonated throughout the building more and more as "Coach Prime" continued to deliver.

"I believe this is going to be a marriage made in heaven", Sanders said, "and I can not wait to get started".

While Hudson and Robinson appeared on Sanders' podcast, the school has yet to officially announce his hiring, saying it will have an announcement about the program on Monday.

Monday, Sanders was dressed in blue and sporting a Jackson State hat as he addressed a crowd spread out for social distancing, made smaller by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Sanders replaces John Hendrick, who went 6-9 overall and 5-5 in the SWAC East. Jackson State's most recent winning season came in 2013. Sanders is now committed to play at Florida Atlantic University. Their first game is scheduled to be of February 19, 2021.

He takes over a Tigers program that has produced fellow Hall of Famers such as Walter Payton, Lem Barney, Jackie Slater and Robert Brazile.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011, being one of 14 players and two coaches to be named in the National Football Foundation's 2011 College Football Hall of Fame Football Bowl Subdivision Class.

A two-sport star, he also spent parts of nine seasons in Major League Baseball. He recently left NFL Network after refusing a significant pay cut, joining Barstool Sports.
