Florida State could be looking to their past for their next head coach.

NFL Hall of Famer and former Seminoles legend Dion Sanders had emerged as a prime candidate for the vacant position.

Currently, Sanders is an NFL Network analyst.

The eight-time Pro Bowler was an All-American cornerback for the Seminoles during the 1980s and earned the Jim Thorpe Award in 1988 as the nation’s top defensive back. He would go on to be selected fifth overall in the 1989 NFL Draft.

Sanders is considered as one the best corners of all time. The man who was nicknamed “Primetime” was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011 following an astonishing 14-year career.

He has some coaching experience, but just at the high school level. Sanders also opened Prime Prep Academy in 2012 which shut down three years later.

Florida State fired head coach Willie Taggart on November 3 after he guided the team to just nine wins over 21 games during his tenure.
