Deion Sanders not messing around in Colorado: ‘Go ahead and get in that portal’


Deion Sanders started his tenure As head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes by directing players towards the exit door.

Speaking to players over the weekend, Sanders hinted at the changes coming to the program, which recently finished a 1-11 season, and suggested the roster look at the transfer portal.

“We’ve got a few positions decided because I’m bringing my baggage with me, and that’s Louis,” Sanders, 55, began.

“This wonderful fan base, student body, and some of your parents will not have the chaos they’ve been enduring for two decades. I will come and when I get here, it will change. So I want you all to be ready to go ahead and jump into that portal and do whatever you can because the more you jump, the more space you open up.

Sanders was introduced as Colorado’s head coach on Sunday and promised the program would “win.”

“We’ll be fine. We will be really good. I can’t worry… We have to stay together. We must be united. We must continue to believe. It may not happen as quickly as you would like, but it will happen. We will win. It happens. I don’t want to put a timeline on it, but it’s going to happen.” Sanders said.
