Coach Prime signed with the Swoosh in 1995, wearing them throughout his pLaying career on the gridiron and the diamond. Post-retirement Sanders had been an ambassador with Under Armour since 2009. While at Jackson State, he used that connection to the brand to secure a new UA apparel deal for the university.  

His accepting the head coach position with Colorado, a long time Nike school , created a conflict with Sanders’ relationship with UA so this development comes as little surprise.
