The former Seminoles' star is rumored to be interested in joining Willie Taggart's staff.

Deion Sanders addressed the Florida State job speculation during an interview on ESPN this afternoon.

He didn't deny it.

Sanders, speaking during an appearance during the Florida State-Southern Miss Independence Bowl, said "you never know."

"I've been known to make big plays with these colors on," Sanders said while wearing his letterman's jacket. "That's all I'm gonna say."

A report from 247Sports earlier today said there is mutual interest between Taggart and Sanders.

Noles247 has learned that Florida State head coach Willie Taggart and former Seminole legend Deion Sanders have mutual interest in Sanders joining the team as its defensive backs coach.

As far-fetched as it sounds, a source with knowledge says Sanders has a serious interest in coaching at the college level. Sanders has coached at the high school level in Texas, he also has worked with the best players in the country each year at the Under Armour All-America Game.

Sanders, 50, starred at FSU in the late 1980s before going on to star in the NFL.
