Deion Sanders is getting ready to accept the coaching position in Colorado. –
According to sources talked to by ESPN on Friday, Jackson State coach Deion Sanders has been preparing to leave in order to take the head coaching position at Colorado.
Adam Rittenberg of ESPN was informed by sources that an announcement is anticipated for late Saturday or early Sunday.
.Sanders and his associates have spent the week reaching out to potential members of his on-field staff and support staff at Colorado, pitching them to join him in Boulder,
sources said. This is because Jackson State is just days away from playing in the SWAC championship game.
According to a source who spoke to ESPN on Friday night, as part of Sanders' outreach,
he called a well-known player in the NCAA transfer portal and urged him not to make a choice because Sanders was moving to Colorado and wanted to recruit him there.
A different source close to a player who has committed to play for Colorado claimed that a Jackson State staff member called earlier this week to inquire
about the player's commitment to Colorado. In order to assess the player, he also requested some film of him.
