Florida State To Hire Oregon's Willie Taggart As Head Coach

Florida State To Hire Oregon's Willie Taggart As Head Coach

He's only once won 10 games and debuted with a 7-5 campaign at Oregon.Taggart's back-to-back 7-5 seasons at Western Kentucky got him the USF job.

On the same day Fisher, who was 83-23 in eight seasons as FSU's head coach, was meeting the media for the first time as Texas A&M's coach, Taggart first met Monday with Florida State officials, according to multiple reports.

It hasn't even been a year since Taggart held his introductory press conference at OR, replacing Mark Helfrich.

Willie Taggart is headed back to the Sunshine State.

Florida State University has hired a replacement for former head coach Jimbo Fisher. You leave for Florida State with a Thank You for setting a building block that can be added onto by the next man in charge of Oregon Football. As it turns out, the wait for the next head coach didn't take all that long like officials promised.

Taggart, a native of Bradenton, Florida, will be the Seminole's first full-time African-American head coach.

And now he's the Seminoles' next head coach.

However, to many Florida State fans, this may seem like a questionable hire. Time for the Recruiting Class is of the essence. Previously, Taggart cultivated a reputation as a program-builder at Western Kentucky (where he was a quarterback in the 1990s) and South Florida. Can Oregon salvage the Class of 2018?

Florida State will play Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl on December 27.
