Florida State is Stupid (Update: Maybe Not)

Not that we needed more proof, but Ian Rapoport tweeted today that the FSU brass is going off the board when considering possibilities for their next head coach: Former star player, NFL Hall of Famer, and nitwit talking head Deion Sanders is apparently on the list.

Um…OK then. I’d run down the list of reasons that this is an incredibly dumb idea, but I don’t feel I need to. Sure, you can point to his lack of coaching experience at the college level, or whatever it was that happened to that charter school that he founded that lasted all of three years.

Or we can go into the reasons that guys with no experience who are being broadcasters are generally bad choices for major jobs. Whatever the case, I’m sure this can’t go poorly at all for Jameis Winston’s alma mater. I’m sure they’ll have no problems at all.

UPDATE (10:06pm):

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Deion is, in fact, not a candidate to be the Seminoles’ head coach: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/former-seminoles-star-deion-sanders-is-not-candidate-for-florida-state-football-coaching-job/

  1.
