Back in the day, Deion Sanders was one of the few two-sport stars, and he spent 14 seasons in the NFL as a Hall-of-Fame cornerback.
He made the Pro Bowl eight times and the All-Pro First-Team six times, and in his first season with the Dallas Cowboys in 1995, he helped deliver them a Super Bowl championship.
Sanders is now coaching the University of Colorado Buffaloes, and so far this year, he took what was a hapless team last season and has guided them to a 3-0 start.
He has brought lots of excitement to college football as a result, which has made people wonder if he may be interested in someday coaching the Cowboys.
Richard Sherman, who was a standout corner himself, said on “Undisputed” that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would never hire Sanders because it would mean he would have the spotlight stolen from him.

Jones is one of the most controversial and polarizing owners in all of sports, and one thing he has been criticized for is his refusal to hire an executive who was a former player or coach, as he has insisted on handling personnel moves himself.
Early in his ownership tenure, the Cowboys lived up to their boastful nickname of “America’s Team,” as they won three Super Bowls in a four-year span during the early to mid-1990s.
But they haven’t even gotten to the NFC Championship Game since the 1995 campaign, and they have had trouble simply winning playoff games ever since.
Their current head coach is Mike McCarthy, and right now, he has the Cowboys riding fast with a 2-0 record and the best defense, at least statistically speaking, in the NFL.
However, being the head coach of the Cowboys opens one up to lots of scrutiny, and if they don’t go very deep in the playoffs this winter, fans may start to long for a change there.NEXT: Analyst Pumps The Brakes On Cowboys Praise
