Report: Deion Sanders will not join Florida State coaching staff
Deion Sanders got Florida State fans excited last month when he refused to rule out joining new head coach Willie Taggart’s staff, but the Hall of Famer has apparently decided against it.
College football reporter Brett McMurphy was told by a source that Sanders turned down a role with the Seminoles.

Sanders was interviewed during Florida State’s bowl game against Southern Mississippi on Dec. 27, and he was asked about the reports that he and Taggart have mutual interest in Sanders coaching defensive backs for the Seminoles. The reaction Sanders gave made it seem like it was something that could happen, but we all know how much “Primetime” loves the spotlight. It’s possible he had serious discussions with Taggart, but we also wouldn’t be surprised if Sanders was just trying to get fans buzzing.
