BIRMINGHAM, Ala.  — Jackson State football coach Deion Sanders wants to be treated like Alabama coach and six-time national champion Nick Saban.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback and second-year coach demanded that reporters shouldn’t call him by his first name before walking out of a SWAC Media Day event at the Sheraton-Birmingham on Tuesday. 

“You don’t call Nick Saban, ‘Nick.’ Don’t call me Deion,” Sanders told Nick Suss from the Clarion Ledger. 

“If you call Nick (Saban), Nick, you’ll get cussed out on the spot, so don’t do that to me,” Sanders later added. “Treat me like Nick.” 

Sanders, who went 4-3 in his first year as college coach, walked out after being referred to by his first name a second time.
