Jackson State Head Coach Deion Sanders Involved In Postgame Altercation With Alabama State Coach Eddie Robinson Jr

Deion Sanders and Jackson State continue their conference dominance on Saturday, defeating Alabama State 26-12 on the Hornets’ homecoming day.

Things got heated between the two head coaches after the game when Robinson pushed Sanders away when he tried to huge him a postgame hug.

Here’s the sideline view:

Sanders wore a surprised look on his face and opened his palms after Robinson Jr. pulled away. Robinson felt Sanders was disrespectful in the media leading up to the game and pregame on the field during pregame, he said.


“I thought there was a lot of disrespect the whole week and so your not going to be disrespectful all week in the media,” Robinson said. “We didn’t talk in the pregame I was out there the whole time at the 50-yard-line. He walked through our huddle on our end zone, he came the long way around to get to his side during the pregame, thought that wasn’t classy at all.

“Postgame I’m not going to give you the Obama bro hug, I’m going to shake your hand and go on I’m always going to be respectful and respect the game. … I’m living on the shoulders of the SWAC, he ain’t SWAC, I’m SWAC, so he’s in the conference and doing a great job, can’t knock that. … You’re not going to come here and disrespect me and my team and my school and then want to bro hug me, shake my hand and get the hell on.”

Jackson State advanced to 5-0 on the season with the win.
