Don’t plan on seeing Deion Sanders in the NFL …

The Colorado head coach and his Buffaloes were absolutely blazing to start the season, tallying a 3-0 start that sent the football world into a frenzy … so much so, that it had many speculating about the possibility of Coach Prime being in the National Football League (NFL) one day.

Since the flamin’ kickoff to the season, however, the Buffs have dropped off on a massive scale, going 1-5 in their last six games. Despite the struggles though, the chatter still remains about Deion potentially heading to the NFL in the future, but Prime made it very clear on a recent edition of “The Dan Patrick Show” that you will never see him coaching in the pros.

“No, no, not whatsoever. I don’t think I’m built for the NFL. I don’t think … because I’m too … I appreciate the game so much, and I respect the game so much and what the game has consistently done for me for a multitude of years, that when I see a guy getting paid millions and millions of dollars and he has no respect for the game and does not want to excel and exceed expectations of the game, I’m going to have a true problem,” Sanders told Patrick.

“So, I’m the kind of coach who would go out there with 53 and come back from halftime with about 32.”


Can’t say I blame ’em … get ’em, Prime!
