Pro Football Hall of Famer Ed Reed is back in the public talking about the Jackson State job as well as what happened at Bethune-Cookman.
“I talked to him before that because he was like ‘I want you to go to Jackson State,” Reed said. “I want to give this to you and nobody else.”
Ed Reed said Sanders called him about the Jackson State job the day after he was called by Bethune-Cookman University.
“He’s like, I want to give this to you man. I can’t think of nobody else who love them kids like this.”
Reed said he even sat down with Jackson State University AD Ashley Robinson about the job.
“I was like, I gotta go visit there too. I went to visit BCU, and I’m leaning to BCU because — if it’s about the culture, our culture — why not help the other one get up? That’s why I chose BCU over Jackson State. “Ashley and them (JSU) — the bells and whistles was there. I was just like let’s build up another brother, sister HBCU while we’re here.”
