As a sporting man, I give Deion roughly the same odds to become Florida State's next head coach as Bill Belichick. "I put so much time into preparing every week for my Sunday job, watching tape and talking to players and coaches, that I still live football". Sanders was a two time All American and won the Jim Thorpe award in college before a thirteen year National Football League career that included 9 All Pro selections and 2 Super Bowl titles.
Florida State athletic director David Coburn has said multiple times that the school expects to have a coach in place by the end of November. He stopped short of confirming that he is in the running, but in response to a tweet from Luther Campbell, mentioned his desire to recruit Miami.
Perhaps the idea of Sanders being a candidate is exclusively to grab headlines without any intention of him being a legitimate option.More news: Pixel Phones Get a Sweet New Vibratin', Ringin' Feature
This @DeionSanders FSU chatter is serious. I personally love it!
Now, Glazer is not normally who you would convert to for a Florida Point out scoop, but he would not share the information if it wasn't coming from some facet of this tale.
The NFL Network reported Thursday that the Pro Football Hall of Famer and ex-FSU star was among the candidates to replace the fired Willie Taggart.More news: Erdogan: Turkey captured slain IS leader al-Baghdadi's wife
Needless to say, Seminoles fans - and even those who don't support FSU - are hoping he gets an opportunity to coach his alma mate. It would just be a real shock to see him just take more than a single of the 10-15 finest positions in college soccer as his 1st university soccer coaching occupation of any sort.
There've been all kinds of rumors flying around the Florida State job since it opened.
All that seems clear at this early juncture is that Florida State looks to be giving the wild Tennessee coaching search from last offseason a run for its money, and we're only less than a week into the process.More news: Kourtney Kardashian confirms she's stepping away from 'KUWTK'
