Deion Sanders has a job opening.
The Jackson State football coach told reporters Monday that the University of Colorado had offered him their position as head coach, confirming a Saturday report by The Athletic's Bruce Feldman. He also said other schools have expressed interest in his coaching services.
"The report is true and they're not the only ones," Sanders said on a conference call. "I would be a liar if I told you they didn't. They know they did it. I know they did.
Sanders declined to elaborate on who else he had contacted.
"I'm not going to sit here and tell you all about me, but they're not the only ones," Sanders said.
Sanders is best known as a Hall of Fame cornerback who played for the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. He has been a coach at Jackson State since 2020. After a 4-3 record during the 2020 season curtailed by COVID-19, Jackson State went 11-2 in 2021 and is 11-0 this season ahead of Saturday's SWAC championship game against Southern.
Sanders has proven himself a skilled recruiter, pulling off a recruiting coup in 2021 when he lured the nation's No. 1 potential candidate, Travis Hunter, to Jackson State. Hunter transferred to Jackson State after initially committing to Florida State for Sanders' college program. He is the highest rated recruit ever committed to an HBCU and the first five-star candidate to play for an FCS program.
Colorado fired head coach Karl Dorrell in October amid a 1-11 campaign. The Buffaloes ended their season Saturday with a 63-21 home loss to Utah under interim head coach Mike Sanford. The program has not confirmed an offer to Sanders or made any public statements about the details of his coaching quest.
Sanders has openly expressed an interest in running a Power 5 school during his tenure at Jackson State. He didn't reveal Monday if he's interested in taking the job in Colorado. He vowed not to let the news of the managerial search become a distraction from Saturday's game against Southern.
"Attention isn't something I knew," Sanders said. "So, come on. I'm not boastful - that's a wonderful word, isn't it? I just made this up. But this is not new to me. Being in the spotlight is not new to me. ”
Sanders was previously linked to the position as head coach at Auburn. The program filled the position Monday when it hired former Ole Miss and Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze.
