For second time, Deion leaves his charter school

 

DALLAS (AP) — For the second time in less than two months, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders has been fired by the charter school he co-founded.

T. Christopher Lewis, the chairman of the Prime Prep Academy board, told The Dallas Morning News that school Superintendent Rachel King-Sanders had fired the former football star, with whom she is not related. Sanders said he didn't know the reasons for the dismissal.

Deion Sanders did not respond to a message from The Associated Press. However, he told WFAA-TV of Dallas that he had been trying to replace school administrators with whom he's had a stormy relationship this year.

Sanders coached at the school and served in other capacities. In October, he acknowledged that a confrontation with the academy's finance chief precipitated his first firing.
