Deion Sanders thinks very highly of the job that he’s done in Colorado.
In just three weeks, Sanders has led Colorado to a top 25 ranking when most people believed they would struggle this season.
A day after Colorado survived a scare against Colorado State, Sanders was featured on CBS’ 60 Minutes.
During the interview, Sanders was asked who he thinks is the best coach in college football, and he instantly declared that it was him.
“Let me see a mirror so I can look at it.”
“You think I’m gonna sit up here and tell you someone else.”

Sanders went on to say that he respects Nick Saban and still learns a thing or two from the legendary Alabama head coach.
“But I tell you this, I love and I adore and I respect and every time I do a commercial with Coach Saban, it’s a gift. Just sitting in his presence and hearing him and– and throwing something else out there so I can hear his viewpoint on it. Because he’s forgotten more things than I may ever accomplish. So I’m a student looking up to this wonderful teacher saying, “Just– just– just throw me a crumb of what you know.”
