Coach Deion. Coach Prime Time. Kind of has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Well, maybe only if you aren’t a Florida State fan it does. Because how freaking entertaining would it be to see Deion Sanders patrolling the sidelines coaching up the Seminoles on Saturdays?

It could happen, at least according to football insider Ian Rappaport.

“NFL Network analyst and Hall of Famer Deion Sanders has emerged as a candidate for the Florida St. head coaching job, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. A fascinating situation that could unfold,” Rappaport tweeted Thursday night.

And while this bit of unlikely news about the Hall of Fame cornerback was met with much consternaton by fans and alumni of Florida State (most notably one Danny Kanell)…

…the man himself, Deion Sanders, did nothing to quiet the rumor that he is indeed a candidate to take over as head coach of the Florida State Seminoles football team.

Infamous Miami Hurricans supporter Luther Campbell tweeted Sanders his congratulations for allegedly being up for the job, writing, “@DeionSanders Head Coach at @FSUFootball he will win a National Championship in two years. Only Nick Saban can compete with him in recruit. I’m pulling for you Brother.”

Sanders replied back to Campbell on Twitter and in no way distanced himself from the idea.

“Love ya my brother! Always have always will. Coming up in FLORIDA You made us think outside the box & dream big. I need those players from Miami. Just joking….. Not really πŸ˜‚πŸ™πŸΏβœπŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏπŸ’―,” he replied.

Campbell then replied back, “Yes Coach I got you no more South Florida kids going to Alabama Clemson Georgia Everybody checking in to Pryme Tyme U
πŸ€“πŸ˜ lol Now where am I going to stay which one of the houses because they’re Definitely going to run me out of Miami what am I going to tell SAP and EJ.”

Don’t worry, Seminoles fans, Sanders’ work as offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill high school gives him more than enough coaching experience to take over. I mean, he can’t do any worse than Willie Taggart did, right?
