Deion Sanders Reveals He's Been Offered Notable Coaching Job

Deion Sanders was back in the news this weekend after reports surfaced linking him to the open head coaching position at the University of Colorado. 

Sanders, who multiple times last week said he didn't have plans to leave Jackson State, responded to the Colorado rumors this Monday afternoon. 

Asked today about the whispers linking him to the Buffaloes, Sanders' only comment was that "the report is true." 

"Deion Sanders on the Colorado Head Coach offer: 'The report is true.' @hbculegends #deion #CoachPrime" Kyle Mosley tweeted Monday. 

Following Jackson State's November 5th win over Texas Southern, a clip of Sanders speaking to his team went viral after the head coach made it clear that he had no intentions of leaving the Tigers. 

"So I won't be at practice Tuesday. But I hate rumors. There's going to be lies that I'm going somewhere to do some bull junk. I'm keeping it 100 with y'all. That’s not happening. So that's what it is," Sanders said to his team after defeating Texas Southern. 

Now, a few weeks later, Sanders' Tigers remain undefeated and rumors surrounding the head coach's future continue to sprout. 

Jackson State is a perfect 11-0 this season and 26-5 overall throughout Sanders' tenure as head coach. Colorado, on the other hand, hasn't had a full season end above .500 since 2016. 

While there may be question marks surrounding Sanders' ability as a head coach at the FBS level, there's no debating the injection of life his hire would bring the struggling Colorado football program. 

Sanders' Jackson State Tigers look to remain unbeaten Saturday as they'll take on Southern in the SWAC Championship Game.
