Jackson State coach Deion Sanders robbed during debut with team?

After Jackson State’s win, Sanders spoke to the media about his personal belongings being stolen. While reports said that the items were found, Sanders took to Twitter to explain the whole situation. Per the 53-year-old coach, an assistant saw the belonging being taken but was unable to stop him. He further added that more belongings were taken from his office, and anyone who was saying they were not stolen is lying. 

Ashely Robinson, Jackson State’s athletic director, confirmed that the items were all recovered to Sports Illustrated. She also issued a statement later on, explaining that they are working to review their security protocols, not wanting this incident to repeat. Sanders remained upset, believing this was a ‘malicious, personal attack’. 

As per Sanders, this is not the first time his belongings had been stolen. A boom box was stolen from his box earlier, only to be returned later. He remained distressed, demanding to know if anyone is aware how it feels to come back happy and with the game ball, only to not have his phone around. He was presented the game ball, and referred to it as ‘one of the best moments’ in his career.
