'Match made in heaven': Deion Sanders to coach Jackson State

Deion Sanders who left his job as an NFL Network analyst in August will take over as the head football coach at Jackson State this spring. File

Pro Football and College Football Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders revealed that he will be the next head coach at FCS Jackson State.

"We're going to win", Sanders said.

"I believe the men who I sat (with) and looked in their eyes on the Zoom call (Sunday) can win SWAC championships", said Sanders, who goes by Coach Prime.

Deion added some Prime Time flare to his speech. rockin' a custom suit that had JSU patches not only on the outside - but in the lining of his jacket as well!

Sanders is now the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian High School in Texas, where he coaches his son, Shedeur, a four-star quarterback prospect in the Class of 2021.

Sanders' desire to get into college coaching could have factored into Jackson State parting ways with coach John Hendrick on August 31.

"We're going to win". "But I believe this is going to be a marriage made in heaven".

Thai protesters' plaque removed after calls for royal reform
The old plaque mysteriously disappeared in 2017and was replaced by one bearing a pro-monarchist slogan. "But we won't forget". King Maha Vajiralongkorn sits at the apex of Thai power, bolstered by a powerful military and conservative establishment.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference school introduced Sanders with the trademark pomp of a historically Black university. "Coach Prime" later opened a blue blazer lined with the JSU logo to much applause.

"These things just come together", Hudson added, crediting athletic director Ashley Robinson and alumni.

Sanders replaces John Hendrick, whose contract was not renewed this summer after going 6-9 and 5-5 in SWAC play.

He takes over a Tigers program that has produced fellow Hall of Famers such as Walter Payton, Lem Barney, Jackie Slater and Robert Brazile. The season was scheduled to begin September 12, but was delayed by five months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Considered one of the greatest cornerbacks in history, Sanders starred at Florida State before the Atlanta Falcons selected him fifth overall in the 1989 NFL Draft. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

This will be Sander's first time coaching at a college level, as he never coached professionally or at the collegiate level before.
