Deion Sanders is officially a head coach of a Power Five football program. 

Sanders accepted the Colorado job on Saturday and was introduced in a press conference on Sunday. He comes to Colorado after spending three seasons at Jackson State where he compiled a 27-5 overall record.

He also just led the program to its first 12-0 season in history. 

As expected, Sanders got quite the payday from the school. According to Brian Howell of Buffzone, Sanders' deal with Colorado is five years for $29.5 million. 

He'll be making $5.9 million per season, which is a $2.3 million increase from what the school gave former head coach Karl Dorrell. 

Howell is also reporting that the school has given Sanders $5 million for his assistant coach pool.

The school is committed to winning and is hoping that Sanders will be the one to turn this program around.
