7. Deion Sanders

Primetime would be a revered hire in Atlanta. The Falcons legend has taken college football by storm and it has been fun to watch.

While Colorado went through a rough patch to end their season, you could still see the impact Sanders had on that team. It is hard to find a coach who players love more than Deion.

His style of coaching is impossible not to like. Who knows what the NFL thinks of him but if there was a franchise that were to hire him, it would be the Falcons. Plus, then maybe they could bring in both of his talented sons.
