Warren Sapp completely destroys the speculation that he's joining Deion Sanders' JSU staff
About that star-studded Hall of Fame coaching staff coming to Jackson State under Deion Sanders? Well, it’s apparently not going down as it was originally reported.
At least according to a colorful tweet from Warren Sapp, who was reported to be joining Sanders’ staff along with the likes of Terrell Owens.
“Ok, let me type this as clear as I can Mississi-Fuxk No!,” Sapp wrote.
The original report came from Sports Director Joe Cook of 16-WAPT, an ABC affiliate in Jackson, Mississippi, who has since deleted the tweet.
Sanders himself tweeted that the report was wrong after he earlier boasted about the 84 years of combined NFL coaching and playing experience. He said he’d worked on the staff for a while, but it wasn’t official because “some of those coaches are still employed.”
Sanders gave an interview to Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America” and explained that the academics and that four Hall of Famers came from the school were just a couple of the reasons he took the job. He also said the kids at an HBCU like Jackson State need the playing field leveled.
“I am excited, I am elated, I have my whistle on right now,” he said. “I cannot wait to get on the grass and do some coaching.”
Ok, let me type this as clear as I can Mississi-Fuxk No!
