Deion Sanders responds to criticism of leaving Jackson State for Colorado

Dec 17, 2022

Deion Sanders will coach Jackson State on Saturday in the Celebration Bowl, his final game as the Tigers' head coach before he moves on to the University of Colorado.

Coach Prime's move has been criticized as much, and maybe more, than it has been celebrated.

Sanders, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, has heard all the noise since he made his departure official.

But he set the record straight during a press conference Friday in Atlanta.

Sanders noted that he never claimed he would stay at Jackson State forever.

"Never once did I say they’re gonna put a tombstone with my name on it at Jackson State. So I wasn't gonna die here. Y'all know that," he said.
