Deion Sanders will not be coaching Jackson State this weekend, the school announced ahead of its game against Bethune-Cookman. Sanders won’t be able to coach this weekend because of a foot injury.

Sanders, who had surgery a month ago on his foot, was told by his doctors that he should sit this one out this weekend.

Sanders said, per FootballScoop, “Due to my recent foot surgery, I will be following my team of doctors’ orders, and I will not be coaching this weekend.”

Sanders continues to say that “Coach Gary Harrell, my right hand, will be leading our team and carrying out our mission to win all four quarters and play smart, tough, fast, and disciplined.”

The Tigers are 5-1 going into this weekend’s game and lead the East right now in the SWAC.
