Deion Sanders is letting his players know that disrespect toward women will not be tolerated at all.
The Colorado football coach is doing his best to rebuild the culture within the program and it starts with how they interact with the women that they see on campus as well as the women in their lives.
During a team meeting, coach Prime Time brought female staffers in to stand in front of everybody and promptly let his Buffaloes squad know that they will be respected.
“One thing I don’t condone is disrespect towards a woman and calling a woman out of her name … Be courteous, be gracious and be polite, and if there’s any dysfunction, obstruction with your girlfriend, fiancée or whoever, with any abuse, that’s it. It’s over. Don’t call me. Don’t have your momma call me. Don’t call Rick. It’s a wrap. You understand that? We’re going to respect our women wholeheartedly.
His rules went beyond the football program and told the players if they mistreated a woman in their personal life, they would immediately get the boot from the football team.
“If there’s any dysfunction, obstruction with your girlfriend, fiancée, or whoever, with any abuse, that’s it, it’s over,” Sanders continued. “Don’t call me, don’t have your momma call me, don’t call Rick [George, Colorado’s Athletic Director]. It’s a wrap. You understand that? We gon’ respect our women wholeheartedly.”
His rules may be harsh, but he is trying his best to turn around a program that has not been good for a very long time.
Sanders was named Colorado’s new head coach early last month after amassing a 27-6 record in three seasons at Jackson State.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
