NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders already left his cushy job at NFL Network and evidently just wanted to hang out at Barstool Sports for a month because just this week, he took a college football coaching job.
Jackson State University in Mississippi, who played in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, has hired Sanders, better known as “Prime Time,” announcing that he’d become their new head football coach. In his introductory press conference, Sanders said he’s already had his coaching staff put together for months and among that grouping is a familiar name.
Another Hall of Famer and former Bills wide receiver in Terrell Owens is going to join Sanders’ staff to coach his former position. Sanders has coached Texas high school football in recent years, but has never led a college football program. Sanders did play for Florida State back in his day, though.
Despite their lack of college coaching experience, Sanders himself will be a huge pull for potential college recruits. Plenty of his assistant coaches will do the same, too. Along with Owens, there’s a couple of other notable names on Sanders’ staff, which also includes former Bills defensive coordinator (2015-2016) Dennis Thurman.
Here’s some of the other assistants:
BREAKING: According to sources Deion Sanders coaching will be

Terrell Owens WR Coach
Warren Sapp Def. Line Coach
Dennis Thurman-Def. Coordinator
Mario Edwards Sr-Defensive Backs Coach
JSU holdovers TC Taylor and Otis Ridley also on staff
