This would be a great hire because all of FSU's games going forward would be Prime Time games.

Take it. Take the leg.

I bet he would be phenomenal at recruiting. If they have so much money to waste, they should hire him in some sort of positional coach, recruit coordinator role.

The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about turkey leg votes

This would be pretty cool for CFB imo.

I mean, can't speak for him as a coach, but he would probably excel in recruiting by connecting with the kids personalities.

This is why we need to try and lure MV back here as an assistant/recruiting coordinator/any position that allows him to go in homes and sell VT. Probably couldn't afford him but it's worth a shot. Would be a home run hire.

Only way he can go places and recruit is as a 10 count coach. Each team can have 10 coaches.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

So FSU is going to roll out the innovative "No-Tackling" defense?

In all seriousness, this would either be great for the program and cfb in general or a spectacular failure.

At least compete with Miami in the "gold chain" category...

Primetime: Why didn't you tackle him?

Primetime: My man.

This must be a story from The Onion...surely

It is a shame how reality keeps ruining satire.

It's gotta be....

If the FSU AD is actually considering this hire with any degree of seriousness, he or she should be unemployed tomorrow. Holy myopic homerism Batman!

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

If you have top-5 coordinators on both sides of the ball (which I can't see FSU obtaining in their current situation), it might not be a bad idea. I have no doubt that he'd able to recruit his ass off. I believe he'd be great at motivating his players. The only things I'm not sure about are his ability to manage the program and make game-day decisions. Those are obviously hugely important, but with a great staff around him, I think he'd do a damn good job.

Honestly, I would love it

The ACC needs some swagger back. Count me as someone who would love to see Prime Time coaching at FSU and Michael Irvin coaching at Miami going forward. Get a little shit talking going with this conference. Give me those games we circle on the calendar for teams you just can't stand.

Right now, the conference is just so bad that, outside of Clemson the whole slate is pretty meh every year.

I am 100% in favor of this idea if we can replace the pregame coinflip with a game of 500 between the coaches. An aging Deion vs Irvin on-the-field battle would be worth the price of admission alone.

Two words FSU:

Mike. Leach.

Mike Leach's destiny is to end up at USF so he can coach from the pirate ship in Raymond James Stadium.

Nope. Mike Leach's hope is to coach from a pirate ship. If so, he'd be best off at UNC-Wilmington.

But Leach is a brash, arrogant, self-important, offensive-minded coach.

And that's why he's a perfect fit at FSU

I'd love to see what Leach could do at a top 5-15 job.

Only if Leach were a Hokie.

Leach is a self-serving, narcissistic weasel.

Has nothing to do with VT.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY HE'S A PERFECT FIT AT FSU!

I think he's hilarious.

If I was the FSU AD and I was actually contemplating this, I would pay Deon in the $3million range and commit to only 3 years, with a school option to extend the contract from years 4 to 6 at a higher rate. I would then spend big bucks on bringing in the best OC and DC in the $2million range for each, also on 3 year contracts with optional extensions, and spend big bucks on position coaches and analysts. I would make sure that Deon knows he has to lean heavily on the advice of his coordinators and learn how to manage a top program.

I bet Haggins gets the job. Seems to have a lot of FSU fan support.

I thought Herm Edwards would fail miserably at ASU and he (shockingly) has a winning record so I ain't saying shit about this.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

While I too are shocked, Herm was a head coach before, ASU is not a high demanding job, and the PAC12 has been terrible so lots of easy wins. The last part is true for ACC so some one like Herm could come in and win.

Herm hadn't coached in eight years and had never coached college ball. He never had to recruit. He didn't even know what a jersey looked like. I think he was greener than you think.

I'm fairly certain he didn't even know what the mascot was.

He had never been head coach of a college, but he was a position coach like 30 years ago. But he came in as a CEO coach and knows how to run practices and things like that. He knows how to deal with the media (Deion's methods haven't always been team friendly). There are a lot of the little thing that he learned along the way as a coach.
