Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders isn't seen as the best football move for the Dallas Cowboys and their potentially soon-to-be-open NFL coaching job by FanSided's Terrence Jordan; who thinks Jerry Jones's franchise has a slew of names to consider that'd bring more to the Metroplex than Coach Prime.

"As one of the preeminent franchises in the NFL, the Cowboys could have their pick of an unprecedented talent pool of free agent coaches if they decide to move on from McCarthy," Jordan wrote. "Jerry Jones is notorious for being difficult to work under, but his deep pockets and ability to offer one of the most coveted jobs in sports should still be enough to woo Belichick, Mike Vrabel, Jim Harbaugh, or one of the top coordinators in the NFL, such as Ben Johnson of the Detroit Lions.

"Hiring Deion Sanders would be one of the splashiest moves the NFL has seen in a long time, but there's little to suggest that it would be the best football move. Coach Prime is still figuring out how to be a great college coach, and if Jones fires McCarthy, it's proof that he's not interested in being patient. RGIII's idea is a fun one to think about, but it wouldn't save the Cowboys from another humiliating end to their season."

RGIII: Cowboys 'need' Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders

Robert Griffin III didn't just link the Cowboys to Coach Prime. RGIII recorded a video of himself claiming that Dallas "needs" Sanders, coming off a 4-8 season in his Power Five debut season, to replace Mike McCarthy.

“I hate calling for coaches jobs because it’s not what I do, but it’s got to be the coach,” Griffin said (h/t New York Post). “You guys have three consecutive 12-win seasons and nothing to show for it. … A lot of people are saying you should go get Bill Belichick as your next coach, because we all know that Mike McCarthy’s stuff was packed before this game was already over. His office, empty. He gone.

“But I know who you need. You need Coach Prime. That’s right, Deion Sanders, Coach Prime.” 

The Cowboys don't need Coach Prime, and from the sounds of it, based on every interview he's done in the past year, Sanders doesn't need them either.
