In addition to that, Josh Newberg of Noles247 reports that Taggart is seriously targeting Deion Sanders to serve as his defensive backs coach. Primetime has never coached at the college level, but Newberg notes that “there is mutual interest on both sides,” though the talks are in the early discussion phase.
I wouldn't dismiss that move. Neon Deion is a lot smarter

than his perceived public persona. He does some pretty good in depth analysis for the NFL Network that the "prime time" viewers don't get to see. If he was serious about it, I could see him being a decent coach. He would definitely bring the bling!

really can't see Deion's ego letting him be under a HC and a DC. and while there are always exceptions, the old adage about great players not making great coaches is in play here. is Deion willing to put in the ungodly hours that college coaches work? Is he willing to recruit? sounds more like a PR move to me.

> the defensive back positions as he was one of the > best ever - no reason he couldn't be a good coach.
Understanding....doing....teaching are all separate skills. Just because someone can do one of the three or two of the three does not mean they can do all three. Perhaps he can but must prove it to know for sure
pretty sure he would be a good choice for DB coach. Question

is whether he would want to do that. Thats a pretty steep step down the totem pole for Deion. He's living a kush lifestyle and has been for a while now. The grind of working everyday, recruiting everyday, dealing with young kids everyday...is not for everyone. He'd be dynamite at recruiting as far as perception from young people goes but i don't see him wanting to text kids everyday and be told what to do by other coaches.
Long shot at best. But worth the effort to get him involved in some way.
Posted this on a duplicate board but not sure he has what it takes to be anything more than a DB coach. As long as he has less responsibilities and can focus on a very specific niche, he might be alright. Otherwise...lest we forget...
