Deion Sanders is making moves off the field the way he used to as “Prime Time.” an NFL Hall of Famer.
Weeks after leaving NFL Network for Barstool Sports, comes a report the great defensive back and kick return will be a candidate for the just-opened head coaching position at Jackson State.
Deion Sanders is expected to be a candidate to become the next head coach at Jackson State, sources told FootballScoop on Monday.
Jackson State dismissed head coach John Hendrick earlier today, along with most of his staff. Offensive coordinator TC Taylor, retained from the previous staff, is also a candidate for the job, sources say.
The Tigers are not playing this fall along with the rest of the SWAC.
Sanders has spoken about wanting to coach in the past.
“I’m going to be a head coach in college football next year,” he said in a live appearance on Dan Patrick’s radio show at the Super Bowl. “I’m that definite. I’m that assured that I am.”
“This is something that is my calling,” he said later in the interview. “I’m going to coach college football. Head coach, not coach. Head coach.”
