|Deion Sanders has gone by many names during his Hall of Fame NFL career, but now he just wants to be called "Coach."
Sanders, entering his second season as head coach of Jackson State, made that clear at Tuesday's Southwestern Athletic Conference media day event after he was addressed as "Deion" by a reporter for a second time.
"You don't call [Alabama's] Nick Saban, 'Nick.' Don't call me Deion," Sanders told a reporter from the Clarion Ledger, referencing the seven-time national champion head coach...
FWIW, Sanders was getting killed on Twitter from numerous sportswriters who wrote that they usually do call college coaches, including Nick Saban, by their first names.
