Sanders Turns Down Lifetime Deal, Opts to Continue Coaching Colorado

Many questions are raised by Deion Sanders' quick ascent to coaching success with the Colorado Buffaloes.

What's next for the Pro Football Hall of Fame coach is the biggest mystery.

Sanders either achieves success right away or is sought out by institutions with better chances.

Alternately, he burns out and makes Colorado's sports director Rick George seem foolish.

The Buffs have lost their last two games against USC and Oregon, the former by a huge margin.

Colorado is one victory away from surpassing the 3.5-win over/under set by most bookies for the season and has already eclipsed their 2022 win total by two games.

It's not because Sanders doesn't appreciate the gesture, he insisted. He prefers to avoid any sounds coming from outside, good or unpleasant.

Sanders won't make a lengthy commitment to Colorado. He isn't aggressively looking into other options either.
