Florida State set to hire Willie Taggart

Willie Taggart Reportedly Will Be Named FSU Head Coach After 1 Year at Oregon

It's official. Willie Taggart will be Florida State's next head coach. 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. How long will OR take to get a new coach? After one season at Oregon, Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports has confirmed Taggart is set to be named the next Seminoles' head coach. After firing both the offensive and defensive coordinators following the 2014 campaign, he steered USF to an 8-5 record in 2015, leasing them to their first bowl game in five years. Handling pressure is an important trait for a major head coach and the expectation to win quickly in Tallahassee isn't going anywhere.

Fisher was the head-coach-in-waiting at Florida State and replaced Bowden before the 2010 season. He initially joined Taggart's staff in Eugene last January after previously serving as tight ends coach with Alabama.

Oregon's potentially historic class is beginning to slide.
