Report: Deion Sanders preparing to accept Colorado coaching job

Deion Sanders has been planning his exit from Jackson State to accept Colorado’s head coaching job, sources told Pete Thamel of ESPN.

Sanders reportedly spent the week making calls to fill out his coaching staff as well as reaching out to a top player in the transfer portal to encourage him to delay his decision.

There is widespread belief Sanders will arrive at Colorado’s facility this weekend, adds Thamel. Jackson State is set to play in a second straight SWAC Championship Game after winning a conference title in 2021.

“They’re not doing a great job of hiding this,” a staff source told Thamel. “If he backs out of this deal, it would be a huge problem for Colorado.”

Sanders has previously confirmed that the Buffaloes offered him the chance to replace Karl Dorrell, who was fired in October after a 0-5 start.

The Pro Football and College Football Hall of Fame cornerback has produced a 26-5 record during his three seasons at Jackson State.
