Could Deion Sanders Bring CU Back to Relevance?

In sports news, it is being reported that former NFL Superstar and Hall of Famer Deion Sanders could soon be named the head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes football team. With this potential hire, the university has a chance to reclaim its place in college football history as one of the powerhouses of the game. Let’s take a look at what the future might hold for CU if Deion takes over.

What Could Happen?
The University of Colorado was once a powerhouse in college football. They won a national title in 1990 and were consistently competitive throughout the late 80s and 90s. However, since then, they have fallen off drastically, becoming just another team on the list of middling squads that can’t seem to break into the upper echelon of teams. These has-beens include teams like Tennessee and Nebraska.

This is where Deon Sanders comes in. He is an incredible motivator and leader who has had success everywhere he has gone in his coaching career. If he is able to bring his passion to Boulder, it could be enough to get CU back on track and compete with some of the top teams in college football again. He also brings tremendous name recognition, which would bring more attention to not only their program but their entire university as well.

Deon also knows how to assemble a great staff around him with various levels of experience from other successful programs across all levels of college football. This would give them access to new ideas and strategies that could help them reach new heights. Finally, his ability to recruit talented players from all over the country could finally land CU back among some of college football’s premier programs once again.

The hiring of Deion Sanders as head coach for CU could be what CU needs to become relevant again in college football after years out of contention for titles or even bowl games. If it doesn’t work out, they have nothing to lose. Deon will either be a game-changer at the D1 NCAA level or a flop. He is currently coaching at Jackson State and is currently on the cusp of the SWAC title. The SWAC isn’t exactly high level, but Deon does have passion, leadership abilities, and recruiting prowess. This should excite Colorado fans about what could come next season if he joins their team as expected. The possibilities are endless when it comes to what Sanders can do for this program, and we can’t wait to see how this story ends!
