Can Prime Save the Trouble on the Plains?
With Auburn Football now looking for a head coach after the Bryan Harsin firing that conveniently came on Halloween day.
Many fans and people of the alike have thrown Deion Sanders' name in the hat to take over the troubled ship on The Plains.
Deion's answer in short, NO.
At least not right now, after a reporter asked his thoughts on the Auburn job, Sanders made sure not to even speak of the Auburn Tigers instead saying ''I thought you meant Jackson State, my bad, fraudulent slip.'' Using Tigers as a ploy to talk only his Tigers. The Jackson State Tigers.
Obviously, Jackson State has been very successful under Deion's leadership going 16-5 during his run.
He has mentioned the importance of coaching up and building guys within the African American community. Which is why leaving a program he has built from the ground up seems very unlikely.
Sanders was even quoted in saying that he believes that one day the Jackson State Tigers could compete with the likes of Alabama in the future but ''they're just not there yet.''
With Deion shutting down that hype train, it will be interesting who Auburn takes as their next option. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin, Miss State coach Mike Leach, and Georgia OC Todd Monken have all been in the rumor mill upon the release of the news.
Auburn does have plenty of boosters and financial support, so it is likely that whoever they grab for the position will be getting a huge payday, but will they be able to fix the current dumpster fire that is Auburn Football. Only time will tell.
