*On his new podcast “21st & Prime” on Sunday, Deion Sanders announced that he would be the new head football coach at Jackson State.

The Mississippi HBCU followed Monday with its own announcement, quoting Prime Time as saying “It’s my desire to continue this storied tradition and history of JSU and prayerfully bring more national recognition to the athletes, the university, the Sonic Boom of the South, and HBCUs in general.”

Today, the Pro Football Hall of Fame member spoke about the new gig and the state of HBCUs in general during an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take.” Sanders also addressed comments from ESPN personality Bomani Jones that declared Sanders would “fail” in his new job if he focuses on himself and not the players.
