NFL Hall of Famer follows Deion Sanders' footsteps, named head coach at another HBCU

Dec 30, 2022

Bethune-Cookman University shot for the stars and got their guy to lead their football team next season.

Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed has been hired as the Wildcats' next head coach, the HBCU announced on Tuesday.

The news comes a few weeks after fellow Hall of Famer Deion Sanders jumped ship to the University of Colorado after three seasons at Jackson State.

Reed, 44, spent 11 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and split the 2013 season with the Houston Texans in New York Jets.

He was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 and won Super Bowl XLVII with Baltimore in 2013. He led the NFL in interceptions three times, and his 1,590 return yards on interceptions are the most in NFL history.
