The Florida State Seminoles’ football program has gone through three straight losing seasons and are on course for a fourth following a 0-3 start to 2021, and rumors are swirling that Deion Sanders could eventually become the new head coach.
Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline is reporting that Sanders has huge support in Tallahassee, and that in the spring, there was even talk of bringing “Prime Time” to Florida State to replace Mike Norvell:
“I asked, ‘What happens if Mike Norvell goes undefeated the rest of the season?’ My source told me, there’s still a very good chance they bring Sanders in. […] It’s been something that’s been talked about and I’ve heard about since we got into Spring Football earlier this year. Deion Sanders to Florida State is very real.
“[…] There was a big push at Florida State, this was back in March, to bring Deion Sanders in as the new head coach,. There’s a faction, not decision-makers but influential people at Florida State who have the ear of the decision-makers.”
