  Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders says he will become Jackson State's football coach. Sanders made the announcement Sunday night on the first episode of the "21st & Prime" podcast with Jamie Dukes on Barstool Sports. The player known as "Prime Time" during his career added, “Isn't the time? Isn't this the moment? Isn't this what's needed? It's a match made in heaven." Currently the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian School-Cedar Hill in Texas, it will be Sanders' first head coaching job at the college level. "I've been offered pro jobs," Sanders added, "so people know I could be an assistant in any college." The move was first reported by the Clarion Ledger in Mississippi.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference has scheduled a Monday news conference to make an announcement about the football program. On the podcast, Jackson State President Thomas Hudson called the hiring “the grace of God” and cited the football's program history in being able to land Sanders. "These things just come together," Hudson added, crediting athletic director Ashley Robinson and alumni. "We're just so very fortunate to really be in this space and have a man like this joining us." Sanders replaces John Hendrick, whose contract was not renewed this summer after going 6-9 and 5-5 in SWAC play. - AP College Football
