Deion Sanders fired: Administrators canned Sanders in 'total chaos,' meeting set

A Deion Sanders fired move was a shocking message made this week by some administrators at a Texas chart school the former football star helped found after the administrators canned Sanders in what he called “total chaos.” A meeting over the past Dallas Cowboys’ player’s role in the school is being reviewed this Friday in a meeting that’s already been set with the official school board, UPI.com shares this Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013.

Having Deion Sanders fired from the growing school seems entirely contradictory, considering that Sanders was a major player in helping to create Prime Prep Academy, localized in Dallas, alongside the former chief executive officer and school director, D.L. Wallace — who was similarly canned this Dec. as well. The source of the firing? It seems the “total chaos” came about following unanswered issues with improper rent payments being made using allocated school funds.

With an examination meeting set with the school board later this week, Sanders has asserted that he has long been dealing with conflicts from some of the charter school’s main administrators. According to the former Cowboys star, Sanders had first been canned from Prime Prep Academy, in fact, for alleged participation in a physical fight with a past employee, but was later rehired. Now, he feels this canning is just another attempt to wrongfully let him go.

Following the Texas school administrators firing him and asking him to leave school property, over 75 students peacefully left the school in protest of finding Deion Sanders fired. However, the football champ asked the students to return, which they eventually did, saying this “chaos” would be handled soon enough.

"This is nonsense. We are sick of it," Sanders said. "The kids don't deserve it. Overpaid, underqualified administrators never worked in a school in their life. Total chaos. We have a formula to restore what was the dream at Prime Prep."

The school board meeting is scheduled for Friday morning.
