Ex NFL Star Calls For Cowboys To Hire Deion Sanders, Draft Shedeur

The Dallas Cowboys have emerged at the forefront of the NFL head coaching rumor mill after an embarrassing home loss to the seventh-seed Green Bay Packers during the Wild Card Round.

Many Cowboys insiders described the outcome of head coach Mike McCarthy being fired as unlikely, barring a playoff disaster. After trailing 27-0 to start what became a 48-32 loss, it’s safe to say his potential firing rapidly increased in odds.

The possibility of hiring Bill Belichick after his storied tenure with the New England Patriots ended has drawn significant speculation from fans, reporters, and current and former players. However, one former NFL star, Robert Griffin III, has a controversial suggestion for Dallas: hire Deion Sanders, the head coach of the University of Colorado.

“You need Coach Prime. That’s right. Dion Sanders, Coach Prime,” Griffin said.

While Sanders finished his first season at Colorado with a 4-8 overall record and a 1-8 conference record, Griffin is convinced Sanders’ “championship mindset” and ability to hold players accountable would translate to success.

“Coach Prime knows how to win in Dallas. He knows what it takes to have a championship mindset,” Griffin said. “He knows how to hold his guys accountable, and he is a culture changer. Look at what he did at Jackson State, going 27-6. He completely changed the culture there at that HBCU. Then he goes to Colorado, and he changes the mindset there.”

Griffin’s bold rant went beyond calling for the Cowboys to hire Sanders as the team’s next head coach. He called on them to draft Deion’s son, Shedeur, as the next franchise quarterback, replacing Dak Prescott when he’s ready.

“And it’s not just that. Coach Prime is also going to bring you your quarterback of the future,” Griffin said. “Yeah, that’s right. Shedeur Sanders.”

“I’m a Dak guy. I love his game. I think the Cowboys can win a Super Bowl with him. But if Coach Prime becomes the head coach, you better believe he’s trying to go get his son to come with him,” Griffin explained. “And if the Cowboys have an opportunity to draft that young man, they certainly are. Dak can take Shedeur under his wing and teach him the ropes until he’s ready to take over.”
