One of the greatest ever to play at Florida State may make a return to the university to bring it back to its glory days.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport says Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, aka "Prime Time," is emerging as a candidate to become the next head coach.

Florida State fired head coach Willie Taggart last weekend after the Seminoles lost to the Miami Hurricanes. Taggart, who took over for Jimbo Fisher after he went to Texas A & M, went 9-12 in his two seasons at FSU.

Sanders played 14 seasons in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and Baltimore Ravens. He's been a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame since his induction in 2011. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame that same year.

Sanders played professional football and baseball at the same time. The dual-sports star played 641 games during a nine-year career in Major League Baseball and became the only man to play in a Super Bowl and World Series. In 1989, he hit a home run and scored a touchdown in the NFL during the same week.
