Deion Sanders Denies Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson Request To Join Colorado Coaching Staff

Sometimes you just have to stay quiet if you really don’t want to hear the truth.

Case in point, former NFL player, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson asked Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders if he could be an assistant receiver coach on his Colorado Buffaloes football team. Without missing a step, Coach Prime promptly turned him down and told him that he was not “dedicated like that” and also reminded Johnson that, “I know you!

The quick, yet funny discussion took place on “Nightcap” which typically features former NFL players, Shannon Sharpe and Ochocinco and former NBA player, Gilbert Arenas. But, in this episode, Coach Prime was on the mic as well, minus Arenas. During the hearty conversation, Ochocinco asked if he could join the staff of Coach Prime‘s team. Former NFL player, Warren Sapp has just joined the staff, so apparently, Ochocinco believes he could work with the coach as well.

“You don’t want to do that. You ain’t dedicated like that,” Prime retorts. “You’re not dedicated like that to coach, you’re dedicated to play, but you’re ain’t dedicated to coach. You ain’t like that… I would bring you in as an analyst, but you ain’t going to be there every day. I know you! You DO know I know you!”

After Ochocinco is still trying to convince him that he would be dedicated to coaching, Prime cuts him off and calls him a liar. The former Cincinnati Bengals player even offered to move from Miami to live in Boulder, Colo. to prove he can be dedicated. But, Prime is not having it, “That’s a lie!”

The more they discussed it, the more adamant Prime became about not hiring Ochocinco, leading to laughs from the three former athletes on the show.

Although the school’s program got off to a great start, the team still ended up in last place in the PAC-12 division but still improved upon its 1-11 record of last season to end at 4-8.
