Deion Sanders aiming for quick turnaround at Colorado behind overhauled roster, dynamic coaching sta

After nearly two decades of mediocrity, Colorado decided to swing big and brought on Deion Sanders to lead its football program. Sanders emerged as one of the biggest coaching names in the sport after guiding Jackson State to a 23-3 record over the past two seasons, but now the NFL legend faces his most intriguing coaching challenge yet at a moribund program in Boulder.

The Buffaloes went 1-11 in Karl Dorrell's final season with the only win coming in the first game after Dorrell was fired. The losses came by an average of more than 30 points per game. This was not only one of the worst programs in the Power Five, but arguably the worst overall program in FBS football -- even becoming the first Power Five team to win Tom Fornelli's Bottom 25 championship upon the conclusion of the 2022 regular season.

Sanders has no interest in being back near the bottom of the sport in 2023. He was aggressive, putting together a dynamic staff with plenty of upside. The roster will look completely different with 46 additions signed to the 85-man roster and more potentially on the way.

Flipping a program at the Power Five level is far different than at the FCS level, but all eyes will be on the Buffaloes as Sanders tries to work his magic. How many times have we said that since Rashaan Salaam left Boulder?
