One of the top defensive backs in NFL history will once again be coaching high school football in Texas this coming season, as Deion Sanders is taking over as the offensive coordinate at Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill, according to a report from the Dallas News.
An NFL Hall of Famer, Sanders’ new role at TC-Cedar Hill will come accompanied with oversight over his son Shedeur Sanders, a freshman set to be the team’s starting quarterback in 2017, according to the report. Sanders’ other son, Shilo, is a junior cornerback on the team and a rising recruit, as he’s dubbed a three-star prospect with offers from Oregon, Texas A&M and SMU, among others.
TC-Cedar Hill won’t mark Sanders’ first coaching stop in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Prior to the news that Sanders will be coming about head coach Aveion Cason’s staff at TC-Cedar Hill, Sanders co-founded Prime Prep Academy and coached at the charter school before later assuming coaching duties at triple A Academy while in his role as a marketing director with FOCUS Academies in 2015.
His next challenge comes in the form of looking to rejuvenate a TC-Cedar Hill program that finished 4-6 in TAPPS Division II last season, and he’ll be able to do so with a son on each side of the ball.
