Deion Sanders to the NFL? Shaq makes case for Coach Prime to lead 1 NFL team
Deion Sanders has done incredible work at Jackson State in his short time with the Tigers.
In 2022, he’s bringing in the nation’s No. 1 overall recruit — DB Travis Hunter — along with some other elite prospects.
But, will he even be the coach at Jackson State this fall? NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal said during a recent episode of “The Big Podcast With Shaq” that he thinks the Dallas Cowboys should bring Sanders in to replace Mike McCarthy (via TMZ):
Sanders played for the Cowboys during his storied NFL career. But, it would be a huge jump to go from the FCS ranks to the NFL.
Sanders has also been mentioned as a candidate for some major Power 5 openings in recent years. We’ll see if that’s the route Coach Prime takes in the coming years, but his coaching star is certainly shining bright these days.
