What an incredible move.
Deion Sanders, who needs no introduction, is a stone cold killer. He also played his college ball at Florida State University, where he’s wanted to coach for years. For whatever reason, this seemingly perfect match never (or has yet to) came to fruition. In 2020, Sanders finally got his first college coach gig at Jackson State, a HBCU is Mississippi.
Not that anyone expected it to, but it didn’t take long for Coach Prime to make a splash. His introductory press conference aside, he won the SWAC and was the 2021 SWAC Coach of the Year.

The move was also announced with a reported $1.5M NIL deal with Barstool Sports, Coach Prime’s current other employer.
Seminole fans are understandably furious, Deion is incredibly ecstatic, and Barstool pulls off an incredibly smart move.
What a National Signing Day.
