Deion Sanders had an eventful Sunday afternoon.

First, Sanders’ coaching debut at Jackson State got off to a terrific start with a 53-0 victory over Edward Waters. But by the time, Sanders’ postgame press conference was happening, the mood had shifted.

Sanders initially told reporters that his phone and wallet were stolen out of the locker room during the game. He called it a “malicious and targeted attack,” as no one else’s belongings were missing.

However, it turned out to be a simple miss-understanding. Less than an hour later, it was discovered that his belongings weren’t stolen afterall.

According to Jackson State officials, his phone and wallet were moved for “safe keeping” and have now been returned to Sanders.

Thankfully for Sanders, things turned out to not be as serious as initially feared.
