Deion Sanders was hired at the University of Colorado because he can recruit, he can make the program attractive and, even if it’s just at the FCS level, has a history of winning.

Sanders is already making impressive moves. He’s honed in on Kent State head coach Sean Lewis to be Colorado’s next offensive coordinator and according to Pete Thamel, Lewis is taking the job.

That never happens. Yes, it is Kent State with very iffy football facilities, but Lewis is an excellent hire for Sanders. The Golden Flashes finished with just 5 wins this season, but had a strong offense that put up a solid 417 yards per game. That’s good enough for 2nd place in the MAC.

The Deion Sanders experiment is a risky one for Colorado, but has the potential to be a home run hire.

Let’s see how it plays out for Coach Prime.
