The Wright Way Network's Steve Rivera believes we should "expect" Deion Sanders to leave the Colorado football behind in 2025 to become the head coach of the Florida Gators.

Yes. Expect.

"One huge option (for Sanders) could be in the SEC," Rivera prefaced before saying, "A homecoming of sorts for college and NFL royalty. In Gainesville, at the University of Florida, Sanders would be the superstar name with D-1 credentials to resurrect a fading dynasty in the Gators.

"The clock is ticking on Billy Napier and time is not on his side. With Deion Sanders prime to move on to bigger and better in a place that is already home, expect him in the Swamp come the 2025 season."

Where to begin...

Deion Sanders leaving Colorado football for Florida in 2025 is a laughable prospect

A "homecoming of sorts" for Sanders wouldn't be at Florida considering he was a Florida State Seminole during his playing days in college. Granted, Sanders isn't a proud Nole and made a point to proclaim that he's a Talladega College alum. It's a well-known secret that Coach Prime and FSU don't see eye to eye.

But again, UF isn't a homecoming even from a distance perspective. Sanders' hometown, Fort Myers, is a four-hour drive to Gainesville. And again, while Sanders doesn't bleed garnet, gold, white, and black, there has to be some part of him that naturally hates the rival Gators.

Oh, and Cormani McClain, one of Sanders' biggest headaches in 2023, just committed to Florida.

Sanders has repeatedly stated his desire to remain in Boulder for five to 10 years. Leaving a program that has catered to his every desire -- from hiring Warren Sapp despite his controversial past to even giving him his own CU course -- for an SEC job that is losing its luster every year as the conference gets stronger just isn't in the cards in 2025.
