Noles247 has learned that Florida State head coach Willie Taggart and former Seminole legend Deion Sanders have mutual interest in Sanders joining the team as its defensive backs coach.

As far-fetched as it sounds, a source with knowledge says Sanders has a serious interest in coaching at the college level. Sanders has coached at the high school level in Texas, he also has worked with the best players in the country each year at the Under Armour All-America Game.

At this point, everything between Taggart and Sanders is still in the early discussion phase, but we can confirm there is mutual interest on both sides.

Sanders and Taggart posted a picture together today before FSU’s bowl game and Noles fans started to freak out a bit at the possibility of Sanders returning to his Alma mater.

Update: Sanders was asked about the coaching rumors during FSU’s bowl game today and this is what he said.

While Sanders would do an amazing job recruiting for the school I highly doubt he would leave his cushy multi-million dollar job as an NFL analyst to become a lowly DBs coach on the sideline.
