Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders stated he had “mixed emotions” after his 53-0 Jackson State coaching victory, claiming his personal items were stolen from the coaches’ office during the game.
Sanders detailed the incident in his post-game interview saying:
“We won. The kids played really well. But, while the game was going on somebody came in and stole every darn thing I had in my locker room… in the coaches’ office. Yea, credit cards, wallet, watches, thank God I had on my necklaces.”
It was reported that Sanders’ belongings were located and returned to him, but the version of events that led to their disappearance are uncertain.
After the press conference, ESPN reported that the school informed them that the belongings were “misplaced and found.”
When these reports circulated, the JSU head coach used Twitter to dispute the notion that the items were not actually stolen.
He further explained that his assistant was unable to restrain the perpetrator.
On Sunday, Jackson State’s athletic director Ashley Robinson released an official statement regarding the matter, citing a desire to prevent future incidents.
The JSU Tigers are now 1-0 on the season with the win over Edward Waters, and will face Mississippi Valley this upcoming Saturday.
