Willie Taggart agrees to deal with Florida State

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

The Ducks went 7-5 in 2017.

Taggart was a possible candidate for other open head coaching jobs this year, but Feldman passed along he was not leaving OR for anywhere other than Florida State if it was available.

Taggart landed at OR, replacing Mark Helfrich, after three seasons at his alma mater, Western Kentucky, and four at South Florida, where he executed a turnaround from 2-10 in his first season to 10-2 in his final year. Taggart has Coached in One Bowl Game with his team making a bowl now three times if you count Oregon.

Willie Taggart is headed back to the Sunshine State.

A person with direct knowledge of the situation says Willie Taggart has agreed to become Florida State's next football coach.

"His values are in line with ours, with academics as important as the product on the field", said Ed Burr, chairman of Florida State's board of trustees. Despite stabilizing a handful couple of programs, FSU's next head coach boasts a 47-50 overall record. The Bradenton native is respected as an offensive coach and a strong recruiter in the state of Florida, giving Seminoles fans plenty of reasons to be excited about the future after losing a national title-winning coach to the SEC. The money Taggart is getting and what his coaching staff will look like is not yet known.

Taggart is also known for bringing in elite recruiting classes and knows the Florida circuit as well as anyone. Previously, Taggart cultivated a reputation as a program-builder at Western Kentucky (where he was a quarterback in the 1990s) and South Florida.

Originally, most of Oregon's 2018 commits were all going to be meeting in Eugene on December 15.

The Ducks are 7-5 this season and play in the Las Vegas Bowl later this month.
