    HOFer Ed Reed is Looking to Follow Deion Sander’s Footsteps

    Deion Sanders, former head coach and Hall of Famer at Jackson State University, achieved great success. Now, Ed Reed, another Hall of Famer, aims to replicate that success as the new head coach at Bethune-Cookman University. According to Scott Polacek of Bleacher Report, the Wildcats have announced the hiring of Reed as their next football head coach.

    Ed Reed’s NFL Accomplishments

    During his career, he was one of the most dynamic safeties the league’s ever seen. Though he never proved to live up to a name as big as Deion “PrimeTime” Sanders he was well respected by the football community as one of the greatest safeties to ever play. He began becoming a household name at the collegiate level for Miami. He was a two-time All Americans and 2001 Big East DPOY. Not to mention, Reed was a national champion along with his other accolades.

    This carried into the NFL where the Baltimore Ravens drafted Reed in the first round in 2002. Reed played 11 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Ravens and conquered a Super Bowl title in the process. He managed to win DPOY, nine Pro Bowl appearances, and five All-Pro teams.

    Reed’s Coaching History

    In 2020, he returned to the Miami University football program when the Hurricanes named him chief of staff. While that took place during the Manny Diaz era, he still remained with the program during the first year of Mario Cristobal’s coaching career.

    He’s now headed to Bethune-Cookman after the school fired HC Terry Sims in November. Sims went 38-39 in his tenure with Bethune-Cookman and had four winning seasons. In the last two seasons, the Wildcats were both 2-9 and were left dominated by Jackson State within the Sanders era. Perhaps Reed can help Bethune-Cookman turn things around in the future.
