🕐 1 min read

 

DALLAS (AP) — After announcing last week that NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is no longer affiliated with the charter school he co-founded following a confrontation this week with a school administrator, school officials say Sanders is back with a school. .

Prime Prep Academy Superintendent Rachel King-Sanders earlier in a statement posted on the school’s website that Sanders “is no longer an employee or representative” of the academy. Sanders coached at the school and served in other capacities. Now the school says his role will be restructured. 

Sanders earlier acknowledged that a confrontation occurred Wednesday during an after-school meeting. The academy’s chief financial officer contends Sanders grabbed him by the throat and threw him to the ground. Sanders went to Twitter to deny an assault occurred, saying he was acting in the interest of students when a heated exchange began.

The academy has two campuses, one in Dallas and the other in Fort Worth.
