NFL Legend Deion Sanders Says Private Gadgets Have been ‘Stolen’ From Workplace Throughout Jackson State Teaching Debut

Former NFL star Deion Sanders made a notable debut as Jackson State head coach when he led his team to a 53-0 win over NAIA opponents Edward Waters College. Although it was an impressive debut, the coach was seething after the game, claiming that some of his personal effects had been “stolen” from his office.

According to Sporting News, a Jackson state official told Sanders’Objects were simply misplaced. The items have been recovered. “16 WAPT News Sports Director Joe Cook reported this on his Twitter account.

A Jackson State official just told me that Deion’s belongings were simply misplaced. The items have been recovered. There is no need to submit a police report.

The outspoken coach, however, vehemently denied that his items were “mislaid”. Sanders responded on his Twitter account to deny the school’s “official” statement.

So there was some miscommunication in what happened to @DeionSanders stuff. When it got into the press, he thought it had been stolen, but a JSU employee had secured it.

It was his first game in the stadium. The first for JSU at home since 2019. A hectic week.

No, it was stolen, but they got it back. It was stolen from my personal bag in my office and my assistant caught the gentleman stealing, but she was alone. No miscommunication my husband at all

Anyone who utters the lie that my belongings were not stolen is lying. My belongings were taken from a zippered bag in my office and other items were also taken from my office. We’ve been calling them since they were reported. My co-worker witnessed the crime. #Truth

ESPN reported on a statement from Jackson State sporting director Ashley Robinson:

“Immediately after our victory today, Coach Prime pulled several items from the locker room. These items were quickly found and returned. Although we consider this to be an isolated incident, we thoroughly review the security logs to make sure this does not happen again. However, we refuse to let this dampen the victory of our JSU Tigers who have worked hard for this moment. “
