NFL Hall of Famer
Why Deion Sanders and these 12 other FCS coaches could make the FBS leap🏈
The spring season allowed FCS players and coaches to own the college football stage. At the center, unsurprisingly, stood Jackson State's Deion Sanders, now known as Coach Prime.
An NFL Hall of Famer who also played major league baseball and arrived at his Jackson State introduction in a stretch limousine, Sanders was never going to make a quiet college coaching debut. He brought waves of attention to Jackson State and HBCU football, and he influenced the recent coaching hire of another Hall of Famer, Eddie George, at Tennessee State. Beyond the hype, could Coach Prime deliver results?
Well, Jackson State started 3-0 before losing its next three games.
