KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT)- Jerome Tang spoke with reports about a variety of topics on Wednesday in Kansas City at Big 12 Media Day ahead of the 2023-24 season.
One of those topics included a recent trip to Boulder, Colorado for Tang and his staff to visit with Colorado head football coach Deion Sanders.
“He’s the CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation,” Tang said. “There are a lot of things, him having done this awhile and the team that he has around him… there are a lot of things about the business that he sees and his team sees that as somebody new coming up I may not see.”
Tang says the conversations were valuable despite Sanders coaching a different sport.
“I wanted to talk to him and find out, what am I missing? What’s around the corner that I’m not seeing?” Tang said. “I’m looking forward to working with them and just learning about how to be a better CEO.
K-State assistant coach Jareem Dowling discussed the trip on K-Nation on Sunday.
