NFL great Jerry Rice mulls coaching, inspired by Deion Sanders

Since being hired as head coach of Jackson State in Mississippi in 2020, Sanders has been making waves in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). Last year, Jackson State achieved its first 11-win season, and the team won its first conference championship since 2007. 

Rice was a college star at Mississippi Valley State, another SWAC school, which Jackson State defeated 28-19 in October. 

It’s possible the success of Sanders – who also hauled an impressive recruiting class this year — has prompted Rice to think about coaching.
