OR searching for coach again after Taggart bolts

I can confirm that Willie Taggart is leaving to be the next coach at Florida State.

Less than a week after Fisher resigned to take the head coaching position at Texas A&M, the Seminoles will bring in former OR coach Willie Taggart as their new coach, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

A formal announcement from the school is expected later today with an introductory news conference scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Taggart danced around the topic of the Florida State opening when speaking with reporters last week. A Florida native, Taggart spent one year in Eugene, leading the Ducks to a 7-5 record and an appearance in the Las Vegas Bowl. He replaces Jimbo Fisher, who took the job at Texas A&M.

The Florida State football program has its new leader. The Bradenton, Fla., native led South Florida to a 10-2 record and top-25 finish in 2016 before accepting the OR job.

Taggart then made his return to Western Kentucky in 2010 when he was hired as their head coach. From there, the Ducks lost four of their next five after an injury to starting quarterback Justin Herbert.

The Ducks play in the Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State on December 16. In eight seasons, Fisher went 83-23 (.783) and guided the Seminoles to three ACC titles as well as the 2013 national championship. Graham was at Tulsa, Pitt and then Arizona State, while Taggart will have traveled from South Florida to OR to now Florida State. After quarterback Deondre Francois was injured in the highly-anticipated opener against Alabama, FSU, ranked No. 3 to begin the season, got off to a terrible 2-5 start.

They won their final three games to finish 6-6 and extend their bowl streak to 36 consecutive seasons.
