Deion Sanders becoming the next head football coach of the Colorado Buffaloes may be a long shot, but the rumors and reports have intensified in recent days.
On Monday, 247Sports college football analyst Carl Reed reported that Deion Sanders is in talks with both Colorado and South Florida for their vacant head jobs. Sanders is arguably the hottest name on the market right now as along with being an NFL great, he’s in the midst of an undefeated season at Jackson State.
The overall vibe from Buff Nation could best be described as cautiously optimistic. Here’s how social media reacted to the news:
He’s a home run to me bc he’s the ultimate winner. Old school disciplinarian on going to class, conduct, even dress code. He wants only players & coaches around him who love the game & want achieve excellence in life. Putting these things together makes him the total package. 2/2 https://t.co/HSFODeTfJG

Holy hell wouldn’t it be dope if Deion Sanders came and coached Colorado? I’m obviously an SC fan but living in Colorado that’s something I wouldn’t mind seeing!

I’m not surprised Deion isn’t talking to Auburn, but I am surprised about Colorado. I figured South Florida was given for him.
