We recently laid out how instrumental former Colorado wide receiver Jeremy Bloom was in connecting athletic director Rick George with Deion Sanders. The all-time great Buffs speedster displayed the kind of fast-paced thinking and determination that made him a terror on the football field and on the ski slopes.

We should all stand up and cheer for the work Bloom put in helping get Coach Prime to Boulder. But, one reward has already come his way. In an interview with The Athletic’s David Ubben, Bloom spoke on the special moment he had with Sanders following his introductory press conference in December (h/t David Ubben of The Athletic):

After the news conference, Bloom finally introduced himself to Sanders. He explained what he did behind the scenes and the two shared a laugh.

“He goes, ‘Wait a second — you set up all those calls? You’re the reason I’m here? You’re the guy pulling the puppet strings? I had no idea Colorado had that kinda clout,’” Bloom said.

Sanders was officially on the job.
