Report: Colorado has offered Deion Sanders its head-coaching job

Mike Florio and Chris Simms dive into the latest on the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes, which are beginning to point at either the Cowboys or the Giants, making Thanksgiving a pivotal matchup.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders may be ready to take a step to a bigger college coaching job.

Sanders, who is currently the head coach at Jackson State, has been offered the head-coaching job at Colorado and has interest in the job, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

Sanders’ track record at Jackson State has been impressive. Taking over a team that went 4-8 the year before he arrived, Sanders went 4-3 in the COVID-shortened 2020 season, then went 11-2 in 2021 and is 11-0 so far this season. It’s easy to see why a Power 5 school like Colorado would be interested in his services.

Once a national powerhouse, Colorado has fallen on hard times recently. The Buffaloes are 1-10 this year and have finished below .500 in 16 of the last 17 seasons.
