Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre has had something of a media resurgence as Mississippi sues him in connection with alleged welfare fraud. More recently, Favre told TMZ.com that he wanted to lure Deion Sanders to coach the University of Southern Mississippi before Sanders became the head coach at Jackson State and, since then, the coach at Colorado boss.

I knew he would do a great job.”Favre said. “I knew the things we needed at Southern Miss, he checked the boxes. Attention, enthusiasm, getting people in the seats. He would have done that. . . . And he knew the players would follow him. Not to mention we would have gotten his son, who will probably be one of the Heisman finalists this year.”

Favre and Sanders were teammates with the Falcons in 1991.

As FrontOfficeSports.com’s AJ Perez reported last year, Favre He allegedly tried to divert $1.5 million in state funds for the construction of an indoor practice facility at USM, in addition to the $5 million Favre reportedly obtained for a volleyball headquarters there. The goal was to get Sanders’ son, Shedeur, to attend USM.

“I picked up Deion Sanders and his son, who is a junior in high school and plays QB,” Favre texted former Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant in 2019. “He has at least 30 offers so far, including us us. Deion and I have been great friends since (1991) and we respect each other a lot.

“As I suspected, Deion’s son asked where the covered facility was and I told him we don’t have one, but we hope to start building in less than 2 years. . . . “I know we have to complete (the volleyball center) first and I am asking a lot.”

Favre asked for a lot and got a lot. He denies knowing that the money he sought came from federal welfare funds.
