Deion Sanders is reportedly in the mix to become the next head coach at Auburn. One issue, however, may give the school some pause when it comes to a potential pursuit.

Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports named Sanders as a candidate for the Auburn job in a “Big Noon Saturday” appearance. However, Feldman voiced one issue that may derail a hire.

“Would the big money people there feel totally comfortable with him running the show at Auburn?” Feldman asked.

Sanders has total control of his program at Jackson State and has tailored it to his liking. It is fair to question whether he would have that at a power school like Auburn, or whether they would be willing to give it to him.

Sanders has made clear he would be open to offers from other schools. However, he does not seem desperate to move on, and can afford to be picky about his situation. That may simply make Auburn the wrong fit.
