Florida State lands Willie Taggart as new coach

Florida State lands Willie Taggart as new coach

That leader is Willie Taggert, who has chose to come back to the Sunshine State after just one season guiding the Oregon Ducks.

He will replace Jimbo Fisher, who resigned last week to coach at Texas A&M. Before joining OR this season, Taggart spent four years at USF and three years at Western Kentucky. Before that, he spent four seasons as the head coach at USF. It's unclear who will coach the team for the game.

He then accepted a scholarship to Western Kentucky, where he flourished as a 4-year starter from 1994-1998 and became a finalist for the Walter Payton Award in each of his last two seasons.

Taggart coached the Ducks to a 7-5 record in 2017. The Bradenton, Fla., native led South Florida to a 10-2 record and top-25 finish in 2016 before accepting the OR job. But Taggart will also head to Tallahassee to take the highest-profile job he's ever had, and with the pressure to bring a program coming off a down year back to glory quickly.

Haggins led the Seminoles (6-6) to a 42-10 win over Louisiana-Monroe in Saturday's regular-season finale.

The Florida State football program has its new leader. He will coach the Seminoles in the December 27 Independence Bowl against Southern Mississippi. Shockingly, that already makes Mullen the fifth-longest serving coach in the Sunshine State.

OR started this past season 4-1 and even briefly popped into the AP rankings, but starting quarterback Justin Herbert broke his collarbone and the Ducks floundered, going 1-4 without him.

While his overall record may be underwhelming, Taggart holds a 25-9 record in the past three years.

With the hiring of Taggart, a new era for Florida State football has begun-a fresh start for a program that has slowly declined since their 2013 National Championship.
