Deion Sanders could be headed to the Prime Time of the Power 5.

FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman is reporting that the Jackson State coach has been offered a head coaching position at Colorado, and there’s genuine interest.

Feldman notes that Colorado wants to make a splashy hire and transform a program which has gone under the radar for quite a while.

“At Colorado, where they’re desperate to pump some life into this program, CU has offered Deion Sanders from Jackson State the job. I’m told he has legit interest in becoming the Buffs new head coach,” Feldman said. “He’s 22-2 the last 2 years, but he hasn’t gotten much buy-in from Power 5 job vacancies. I’m told he can go there and there’s people at CU who are optimistic. He would make this program nationally relevant for the first time in a long, long time.”

Colorado is 1-10 this season and only has 1 winning season since 2006. Despite having success at Jackson State, Sanders has been bypassed for Power 5 gigs in the last couple years, including his alma mater Florida State. The legendary former defensive back is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
