He made the pledge so that the school could finish building its football complex, which he played in while in the Hall of Fame.

On his 1994 album Prime Time, Deion Sanders recorded the song “Must Be the Money,” which became a hit single.

Hall of Fame coach Jim Harbaugh is now putting his words into action by signing an agreement with his current employer.

Sanders announced in an Instagram video that he plans to contribute half of his salary as Jackson State’s football coach to help the university finish building of its football facilities.

If he is ready to donate a quarter of his wage, the project may be completed, according to the video. Sanders then goes above and above the call of duty.

“I’ll do more than that to get this done for these kids,” Sanders exclaims in the video. If it takes half of me to finish this, then so be it.” If you don’t trust me, you may check me out.. The receipts will be sent to you.”

To coach Jackson State in 2020, Sanders received a four-year contract with an average base salary of $300,000 for each year.

According to the Mississippi Clarion Ledger, Sanders hopes to have the facility finished by Aug. 4. The Tigers begin the 2022 season against Florida A&M on September 4 in Miami.
