Is Bob Stoops about to become the new FSU head coach?

By Stephen Diener

Ah yes, the rumors are swirling in Tallahassee.

Just a couple of days after Willie Taggart was fired by Florida State, Bob Stoops name has suddenly emerged out of nowhere as a top candidate for the Seminoles head coaching job.

As of now, the former Oklahoma head man is the general manager and head coach of the Dallas Renegades, the new XFL that starts its season in just a few months.

But according to confirmed reports, Stoops was seen in Tallahassee last night.

Is it possible that he might leave Vince McMahon high and dry and come back to the college game?

This would be a huge move for FSU and for the state of Florida as a whole if this actually happens.

But if you believe Stoops, he just came out this afternoon and said he is not a candidate for the job and was at the Hard Rock casino with Dan Marino all day yesterday.

It’s always impossible to tell who is telling the truth in these situations, because let’s be honest, coaches are really good at lying. So we will just have to wait and see how this one plays out.
