Deion Sanders has emerged as a possible candidate for the Flordia State head coaching position. Florida State fired coach Willie Taggart following 27-10 lost Miami last Saturday. FSU was 9-12 under Taggart, who replaced Jimbo Fisher in 2017.
Deion Sanders went to college at FSU and is one of the most iconic football players in school history. He also one of the greatest athletes to ever play at Florida State. While at FSU, Deion played football, baseball and ran track during his four years at the school. Sanders was a two time All- American and in 1988, he won the Jim Thrope Award. Primetime also has his No.2 jersey retired at Florida State.
Deion Sanders went on to play 14 seasons in the NFL. He intercepted 53 passes and has ten defensive touchdowns. Also, he has nine kick and punt returns for touchdowns. Deion won two Super Bowls in his NFL career and went to the Pro Bowl eight times. Sanders is a member of the pro football Hall of Fame and is the best cover corner to ever play in the NFL.
Since retiring football, Sanders had worked for the NFL Network and has been the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian- Cedar Hill High School. He has had the position since 2017. The school has won back to back Division II state championships in Deion’s first two seasons there.
It will be interesting to see if Deion Sanders gets the FSU job, i think Sanders would be a great recruiter and would be able to land top recruits with his beliefs, and the respect factor would be huge. Sanders knows football, but taking on the program would be a different type of pressure for him. FSU has always been a win-now kind of school. So let’s sit back and see how this situation plays out and what Florida State will elect to do.
