For the second time in two months, Deion Sanders has been fired from the Dallas prep school that he co-founded in 2012.

The news was first reported by Dallas TV station WFAA, and according to the Dallas Morning News, no reason was immediately available for the decision.


Upon hearing of the decision, students at Sanders' Prime Prep Academy reportedly walked out in protest.

Superintendent Rachel Sanders, who is not related to the Hall of Fame cornerback, made the decision. T. Christopher Lewis, Prime Prep’s board chairman, told the Morning News he was surprised by the firing.

“I did not approve this dismissal nor would I have made that decision,” Lewis said.

Sanders, who coaches the school's football team, was fired in October after a co-worker accused him of assault. He was rehired hours later.

Sanders posted several cryptic Twitter messages which may refer to his firing.



The firing comes several days after a Dallas Morning News feature revealed that the Texas Education Agency is closely examining Prime Prep because of disarray in the school's leadership and accusations of academic and financial trouble. Following recent testing, Prime Prep found itself among the 20 percent of Texas charter schools that failed to meet state standards.
