As long as Deion Sanders continues to win at Jackson State, he will continue to be tied to Power 5 jobs. Even Sanders isn’t hiding that fact.

Sanders appeared on ESPN’s “College GameDay” on Saturday and was asked about potential interest from FBS schools. The Jackson State head coach made it clear he has no plans to quit his current job, but was also candid about his willingness to at least listen to other opportunities.

“I would be a fool and a liar to tell you that I am not going to maintain these things, because I am. But I have no plans to move or go anywhere,” Sanders said.

Kudos to Sanders for being honest about this. Speculation will hover around him, whether he recognizes it or not. He may as well be upfront about it, while making it clear that he hardly sends active feelers for other jobs. He has been consistent about this answer as well, which only makes it more authentic.

Reports have suggested that some top schools have already considered suing Sanders. However, it doesn’t look like anyone came close to pulling him away from Jackson State.
