Jackson State’s Deion Sanders in Talks With Colorado, USF, per Report

Jackson State coach Deion Sanders was expected to be in the running for FBS jobs after the season following his swift turnaround of Jackson State in the FCS, and that expectation appears to be right on schedule.

Sanders has been contacted by Colorado and South Florida regarding their head coaching vacancies, according to a report from Carl Reed of 247Sports. According to the report, Sanders is rumored to have been connected to the Auburn job. However, he has not spoken to the Tigers about the opening.

Sanders stated last month that he would listen to overtures from Power 5 programs ..

Sanders’s prowess on the recruiting trail allowed his Jackson State program to flip athlete Travis Hunter, the nation’s top recruit, from Florida State last December. It was a remarkable feat for an FCS school to land a consensus five star recruit. But Sanders proved that he can win recruiting battles at an HCU.

Strong recruiting and player development has led to a significant turnaround for the Tigers under Sanders.

Sanders is 26-5 as Jackson State’s coach as he nears the completion of his third season at the helm. The Tigers (11-0) will play for the SWAC championship on Dec. 3. A win would give the Tigers a second consecutive appearance in the Celebration Bowl, where the MEAC champion would be played.
