"For starters, the children played extremely well," a clearly angry Sanders explained during his postgame press conference, prior to continuing. "However, while the match was happening, a person arrived and stole every damn thing I've in the coaches' office. Credit cards, watches, pocket. Thank god I had in my bracelets."
After Sanders' press conference, the faculty told ESPN that his things were"lost and discovered."
However, Sanders contested the products were lost in a collection of tweets afterwards Sunday, stating that his helper walked on a guy in the process of committing the theft.
Sanders went on to state that the products were recovered since being reported lost.
After Sunday evening, after Sanders tweeted, Jackson State athletic director Ashley Robinson issued a statement that read,"Immediately after our win now, several things belonging to Mentor Prime were shot in the locker area. These products were immediately recovered and returned. While we believe this an isolated event, we're thoroughly reviewing safety protocols to guarantee this doesn't occur again. But we refuse to let this dampen the success for our JSU Tigers, who've worked hard for this moment."
Sanders, who played Major League Baseball along with being a two-time Super Bowl winner, is a first-time head soccer coach at the collegiate level.
Sanders declared on his podcast"21st and Prime" in September he would be the next head coach at Jackson State. The Tigers' match on Sunday was the first in a seven-game spring program that runs through April.
