Why FSU Football should hire Willie Taggart as next football coach

Why FSU Football should hire Willie Taggart as next football coach

While we're not going to take this as scripture that Taggart is 100% sticking at OR, it's been all quiet on the Western Front since the initial reports broke on Friday that his agent was negotiating with Florida State.

For the first time in over four decades, FSU football is actually in the market for a football coach after Jimbo Fisher made a decision to abandon ship for a big payday at a middle of the road SEC program, Texas A&M.

According to multiple reports, the school has offered Taggart a new contract with the hopes of keeping him in Eugene. On Dec. 7, Taggart was announced as OR coach. And even though OR has recently offered Taggart a new contract extension, it's not almost the kind of pay raise the coach could likely land if he is hired by Florida State. His base salary this season was just under $3 million.




From the moment he took the job with the Ducks, Taggart made a concerted effort to keep his footprint in the Sunshine State.

The new deal for Taggart is a one-year extension of the contract he signed last year with a buyout of $4.5 million. On Wednesday, Oregon reportedly offered Taggart a 5 year, $20 million extension.

A former assistant to MI coach Jim Harbaugh when Harbaugh was at Stanford, Taggart spent four years at South Florida after three years as the head coach at Western Kentucky.
