Deion Sanders does not deny report that he could join Florida State staff
Deion Sanders has been outspoken with his support of Florida State’s decision to hire Willie Taggart as its head coach, and that could be because the Hall of Famer has had discussions about joining Taggart’s staff.
Sanders was interviewed during the first half of Florida State’s bowl game against Southern Mississippi on Wednesday, and he was asked about a report that claims he and Taggart have “mutual interest” in Sanders joining FSU’s staff to coach defensive backs. The Seminoles alum certainly didn’t deny it.

“You never know. I’ve been known to make big plays with these colors on,” Sanders said. “That’s all I’m gonna say.”
Over the weekend, Sanders had an identical response when someone tweeted that he should join Florida State’s staff.

Fueling even more speculation, Taggart retweeted Sanders’ response.
At the very least, Sanders is having fun with the speculation. We know “Primetime” loves the spotlight, so that isn’t a surprise. But if Sanders does have plans to return to Florida State, that should be a huge boost for the Seminoles in the recruiting department.
