Jerry Rice has seen what Deion Sanders has done at Jackson State and it has him very intrigued.

Rice starred at Mississippi Valley State before becoming the best wide receiver in NFL history, primarily with the San Francisco 49ers and later the then-Oakland Raiders.

Rice gave his all to the game, but not until Sanders started turning heads at Jackson State did he even think about coaching.

The Cowboys take the NFC fourth seed and the Eagles take the NFC seventh seed heading into the matchup. If the Cowboys win on Saturday night, and the Buccaneers, the Cardinals and the Rams lose on Sunday, it would push the Cowboys into the second seed. Regardless, they will not fall below the fourth seed since they won the NFC East.

"I feel like I played the game for such a long time and I was just totally committed," said Rice to Khari Thompson of the Mississippi Clarion Ledger. "I just poured everything into my career that I didn't have anything left because as a coach you don't really have a life. I mean, coaching, it is hard, man. It takes up the majority of your time…

"But yeah, it takes a total commitment. And you got to be all-in. So, it started to cross my mind just a little bit now."

Could Rice join Coach Prime and Eddie George as the next big name to lead an HBCU program?

Sanders might be changing the paradigm at Jackson State, but George taking over at Tennessee State in the same city he once starred in the Tennessee Titans backfield cannot be overlooked. Neither can former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson taking over traditional HBCU power Grambling in 2022. If Rice were to join them in the coaching ranks, it will truly be a new era of ball.
