Deion Sanders already being mentioned for Power 5 coaching job
Deion Sanders is off to a solid start at Jackson State as he’s now in his second season as head coach. But given the troubles at his former school, Florida State, more than a couple people are wondering if he’s in for a job change.
Jackson State beat Tennessee State, which is coached by Eddie George, 38-16 on Saturday, and moved to 2-0 on the season. The Tigers went 4-3 this past season, which was played in the spring.
Of course, after Florida State lost to Jacksonville State on a walk-off touchdown late Saturday night, plenty of chatter began about Sanders going back to FSU, this time as the coach.
In November, 2019, the NFL Network reported that Sanders, a Hall of Famer, emerged as a candidate for the Florida State head coaching job, as a fascinating situation that could have unfolded. It didn’t pan out, obviously, but some are wondering what might have been.
Well this is going to be interesting! Deion Sanders to FSU!? How long will that take and how long before it happens?? You do know it’s going to happen right!? https://t.co/Q4OVHQjWSf

At this rate, we really might see Deion Sanders as the FSU head coach
