For the second time this year, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders has been fired from the Dallas-area charter school he co-founded in 2012, according to a report by WFAA-TV.
Specific details of his dismissal from Prime Prep Academy have not been released, but it came as a surprise to the the school’s board chairman T. Christopher Lewis.
“I did not approve this dismissal nor would I have made that decision,” Lewis told the Dallas Morning News. “I would imagine some of the board members would want to know the rationale for this firing.”
Students walked out of class in protest after hearing the news on Tuesday.
“I never dreamed this,” Sanders told WFAA-TV. “I just dreamed of having the best academic and athletic institution in the country, and we are going to have it. We are going to have it… we just have to get this mess out.”
Sanders also responded on Twitter.
