Deion Sanders reacts to Mel Tucker's new massive contract at Michigan State
Deion Sanders’ Jackson State Tigers have been on a roll this season. Sanders has his team sitting 10-1 with 1 regular season game against Prairie View A&M left on the schedule.
Mel Tucker, like Sanders, has his Michigan State Spartans rolling this year, too, so much so that the Spartans rewarded Tucker with a massive new 10-year, $95 million contract. Yes, you read that right — $95 million all guaranteed.
The Spartans were able to keep Tucker after the head coach was a hot name on the coaching carousel and mentioned for the LSU head coaching job. Instead, the Spartans were able to keep Tucker in East Lansing.
That caught Sanders’ attention, too, and the Jackson State head coach sent Tucker a message on social media.

All it takes in the coaching profession is one good year and you’re set for life. Outside of 2021, Tucker was a combined 12-19 at Colorado and Michigan State.
