Warren Sapp To Join Coach Prime’s Coaching Staff In Colorado

"My bags are packed. I'm ready to go!"

Last season, NFL legend Warren Sapp expressed an interest in joining the University of Colorado Boulder football coaching staff led by head coach Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders.

Well, it’s happening.

After Sapp graduated from Texas Seminary Christian University with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian sports management, Sanders announced in December that the Hall of Famer would be a coach for the Buffaloes football team.

While in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl activities, Sapp appeared on the DNVR Sports podcast and said Sanders informed him he would be on the job starting in March.

“That’s what Prime said. So, if Prime tells me I’m coming in March, then stamp it, right? So I’m stamping it. My bags are packed. I’m ready to go!” an excited Sapp said.

When Sapp told Sanders that he wanted to join him on staff last year, he told him he would hire him after the NFL great received his diploma. Sapp played college football at the University of Miami, but left to go pro after his junior year.

“To see him go get his diploma because I know what he wants to do, he wants to coach on this staff, and he wants to be a part of this staff,” Sanders said in December. “And he is going to be a part of this staff.”

After great success coaching at Jackson State University, Sanders was hired by the University of Colorado Boulder to replicate the achievements he accomplished at the HBCU. The Buffaloes were 1-11 in 2022 season, and although the Buffalos didn’t play in a bowl game in 2023, they finished the season 4-8. Sanders also revived interest in the long-struggling football program.
