Walter Payton’s alma mater is about to have a new head coach. According to HBCUSports.com, Deion sanders has agreed to become the next head coach of the Jackson State University Tigers.
Deion has already been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and he has been a huge advocate to help Historical Black Colleges and Universities.
Last year Deion was assigned by the NFLPA to help with the HBCU Combine that was supposed to take place in Miami Florida but was canceled due to COVID-19.
This is huge news for Jackson State University they will be landing a very knowledgeable football coach and somebody with a lot of swag. Together, hopefully he can turn around the program and get a little respect for HBCU schools back!
Now there are conflicting reports!
Update: It looks like it is going down! PrimeTime to HBCU football
