BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Deion Sanders says a report stating the University of Colorado has offered him its head coaching job is true and he has also received interest from other schools.

The Jackson State coach didn’t say whether he’s considering any of the opportunities, including trying to turn around the Buffaloes’ declining program.

The university hasn’t commented on any candidates to replace Karl Dorrell after he was dismissed in October.
