The Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback is 27-5 over three seasons with JSU, including a 12-0 season this year and consecutive SWAC titles.
"I have chosen to accept a job elsewhere next year. I’m going to finish what we started," Sanders told his team in a video posted to Instagram. "We’re going to dominate. I’m going to be here until that end and that conclusion, and then we’re going to move on."
The Tigers are looking to avenge last year's Celebration Bowl loss to SC State. The game is scheduled for an 11 a.m. CT kickoff on Dec. 17 from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and will be televised on ABC.
