Jackson State Claims Deion Sanders’ Personal Items Were ‘Misplaced’ But Former NFL Player States ‘Naw, It Was Stolen’

Former NFL great now college football coach Deion Sanders had a remarkable debut as a Jackson State coach when he led his team to a blowout victory against NAIA opponent Edward Waters College 53-0. Yet, although it was an impressive debut, the coach was seething after the game because he had some personal items of his stolen from his office.

According to Sporting News, an official from Florida State had stated that Sanders’ “items were just misplaced. The items were recovered.” 16 WAPT News’ Sports Director, Joe Cook reported it on his Twitter account.

Yet, the outspoken coach vehemently denied that his items were “misplaced” but, actually stolen. Sanders responded via his Twitter account to dispute the “official” statement from the school.

ESPN had reported that Jackson State athletic director Ashley Robinson had issued the following statement:

“Immediately following our win today, several items belonging to Coach Prime were taken from the locker room. Those items were quickly recovered and returned. While we consider this an isolated incident, we are thoroughly reviewing security protocols to ensure this does not happen again. However, we refuse to let this dampen the victory for our JSU Tigers, who have worked hard for this moment.”
