Deion Sanders Adds Star Power to JSU Staff With Two NFL Hall of Famers (Update)

Deion Sanders’ coaching staff at Jackson State will include none other than Terrell Owens as wide receivers coach and Warren Sapp coaching the defensive line, according to Joe Cook, sports director at WAPT-16 in Jackson, Mississippi.

That’s right, two Pro Football Hall of Famers teaming up with the hall of fame head coach to put together one of the biggest star power coaching staffs in college football history. Jackson State has to officially be on the radar of three-star kids who will have no choice but to consider being coached by guys who’ve made it to the top of the football mountaintop.

Deion says his coaching staff will have 84 years combined of NFL coaching and playing experience. Mario Edwards Sr. played in the NFL for five seasons. New Jackson State defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman is credited with turning Darrelle Revis into a future hall of farmer. Offensive coordinator Jason Phillips was Andre Ware’s main target during the Houston Cougars run-and-shoot days before going on to play five seasons in the NFL. Phillips has an extensive college coaching resume at the FBS level.

Update: Deion has responded. “THIS IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG! This is how junk gets started. Not a good way to get started with me,” Prime said about Joe Cook’s staff revelation, which Cook hasn’t deleted. Sapp and T.O. are saying it’s fake news.

  1. WOW…now THAT’S a college staff…but like everything else…these guys played the game at the highest level but can they coach up the players…do they have patience to teach the finer points.
    Time will tell, but wish them and Coach Deion all the best!!!

  2. Prime is on staff at his sons high school. He is the OC and calls all the plays. I watch them play at the end of August on msespn. That team was crazy good and ran a complex Offense. With or without star power assistants Coach Sanders will bring J State to the next level. Watch out Leach and Kiffin.
