Last season, former NFL player Warren Sapp expressed an interest in joining the University of Colorado Boulder football coaching staff with head coach, Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders. After Sapp graduated from Texas Seminary Christian University with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Sports Management, Sanders announced that the former defensive specialist would be a coach for the Buffaloes football team. Several days ago, Sapp confirmed he would start next month in March.
While in Las Vegas, seemingly for the Super Bowl activities, Sapp appeared on the DNVR Sports podcast and made the revelation that Sanders informed him that he would be on the job starting in March.
“March is when I’m coming. That’s what I was told,” Sapp said to the hosts of DNVR Sports.
“That’s what Prime said. So, if Prime tells me I’m coming in March, then stamp it, right? So I’m stamping it. My bags are packed, I’m ready to go!” an excited Sapp said.

Sapp graduated from Texas Seminary Christian University with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Sports Management.
When Sapp told Sanders that he wanted to join him on staff last year, he told him he would hire him after the NFL great received his diploma, and that he did!
“To see him go get his diploma because I know what he wants to do, he wants to coach on this staff, and he wants to be a part of this staff,” Sanders said in December. “And he is going to be a part of this staff.”
After great success coaching Jackson State University, Sanders was hired by the University of Colorado Boulder to replicate the achievements he accomplished at the HBCU. The team was 1-11 last season and although the team missed the playoffs, they did have a better season by finishing with a three-game improvement at 4-8.
