AP Source: Kent State's Lewis joining Sanders at Colorado
CLEVELAND — (AP) — Kent State's Sean Lewis is leaving the school after five seasons to become new Colorado coach Deion Sanders' offensive coordinator, a person familiar with the hiring told The Associated Press on Monday night. Known for his wide-open offensive attack, the 36-year-old Lewis went 24–31 at Kent State, leading the program to bowl appearances in 2019 and 2021. ESPN was first to report Lewis' departure for Colorado, which hired Sanders away from Jackson State on Saturday. Lewis took over a Kent State program in shambles and built it into a consistent winner inside the Mid-American Conference.

Kent St. coach: No. 1 Georgia has 'greatest collection of talent that's ever been assembled'
Kent State coach Sean Lewis is in awe of the players Kirby Smart has recruited to and developed at Georgia. It’s not easy to disagree with Lewis after Georgia beat Alabama for the national title and the way it’s started the 2022 season. Georgia is a 46.5-point favorite over the Golden Flashes at BetMGM and is -10000 to win straight up. That means if you bet $10 on a Georgia win by any score, you would make a 10-cent profit on the bet if Georgia wins. Kent State, meanwhile, is +2500 on the money line and tied with Vanderbilt — who plays at No.wftv.com
