Deion Sanders Names His Son Shedeur The Starting QB For Colorado At His Introductory Press Conference

As everyone probably knows by now, Deion Sanders has left Jackson State to become the new head coach at Colorado and will try to turn a team that only won 1 game around.

He made a big splash with viral videos of his first meeting with the players telling them that he is bringing some “luggage” with him and it’s all Louie, so if they aren’t good with it, they should hit the transfer portal. He says he’s bringing guys from Jackson State, and they’re all excellent, so if they aren’t good with competing for their spots, they need to hit the portal.

One of the players he’s bringing with him is his son Shedeur, a QB. At his introductory press conference, Coach Prime announced that Shedeur would be the new starting QB but did say he’d have to earn it.

That is not surprising, given the Buffaloes only won one game, and their current QB JT Shrout is an SR.

Hopefully, they will find the money to pay Coach Prime.

Sanders’s deal with Colorado is for five years, $29.5 million, which is an average of $5.9 million per year, per Brian Howell of Buffzone. Sanders will make $5.5 million in year one, and will earn $200,000 raises each year over the life of the contract.

The pay of Sanders far exceeds that of former coach Karl Dorrell, who was paid $3.6 million this season. The $3.6 million that Dorrell earned was previously the most Colorado had ever paid a head coach.

So how exactly will George and Colorado pay for the new contract for Sanders, which is the richest deal in the history of the football program?

“We don’t have the money yet, but I know we’ll have it so I’m not worried about that piece,” George said when asked about Sanders’s contract on Sunday.

While George wasn’t ready to make public the method through which the school will pay Sanders, it does sound like there is some funding lined up for the new coach that will be finalized soon.

It should be a fun time in Boulder.
