Deion Sanders And Trei Oliver Disputing for The 2022 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award

Deion Sanders And Trei Oliver Disputing for The 2022 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on November 23, 2022

HBCU head coaches Deion Sanders (Jackson State) and Trei Oliver (North Carolina Central) will compete for the 2022 FCS Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award. The two have guided their football teams to a potential clash in the Celebration Bowl on Dec. 17.

The Tigers have a penultimate match before making plans for Atlanta and must first defeat either Southern or Prairie View in the 2022 SWAC Championship title game. However, we may see if Sanders or Oliver will notch the first significant honor of the FCS postseason.

The FCS announce the field of 16 finalists, and the 2021 FCS Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year recipient Deion Sanders is a favorite to repeat after leading the No. 5 Jackson State Tigers (11-0, 8-0 SWAC) to its first undefeated regular-season record in the school's history.



Sanders is 16-0 in the SWAC for two-consecutive seasons in his quest for dominance in the league and HBCU football.

The FCS Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year finalists include:

1. Glenn Caruso – St. Thomas (Minn.)
2. Bob Chesney – Holy Cross
3. Chris Hatcher – Samford
4. G.J. Kinne – Incarnate Word
5. Tre Lamb – Gardner-Webb
6. Mike London – William & Mary
7. Tom Matukewicz – Southeast Missouri
8. Trei Oliver – North Carolina Central
9. Keith Patterson – Abilene Christian
10. Ray Priore – Penn
11. Rich Rodriguez – Jacksonville State
12. Deion Sanders – Jackson State
13. John Stiegelmeier – South Dakota State
14. Troy Taylor – Sacramento State
15. Brent Vigen – Montana State
16. Chris Villarrial – Saint Francis (Pa.)

The recipient of the 2022 FCS Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award will be announced on Dec. 8, and the FCS National Award ceremony banquet will be held in Frisco, TX, on Jan. 7.
