Deion Sanders pursuit of coaching college football landed him interviews with Florida State and Arkansas before landing at Jackson State. However, he did make an impression with Razorbacks athletic director Hunter Yurachek during his interview...
“I was thoroughly impressed with Deion,” Yurachek told Sports Illustrated. “I didn’t think this was the right starting point for him as a collegiate head coach in the SEC, but I think Jackson State is a great landing spot. Some are going to say this is a publicity stunt. Yes, it’s going to sell more tickets, but the time I was able to visit with Deion, he knows football.”
