Florida State's firing of Willie Taggart on Sunday came less than two years after he was hired to turnaround a program that would suffer their first losing season since 1976 in Taggart's first year, which coincided with their bowl streak snapped at 36 consecutive years.

NFL Hall of Famer and former Florida State legend Deion Sanders has emerged as a candidate to be the Seminoles' next head coach, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo report.

Sanders is arguably the most recognized name and face associated with the program and would inject an immediate jolt of excitement in Tallahassee. He played football, baseball and track at Florida State from 1986 through 1988, earning consensus All-American honors in "87 and "88 and the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in "88".
