Willie Taggart’s stint as the Head Coach of the University of Oregon was a short one. Only one year after he came from USF to the pacific northwest, he already returns to Florida as the Head Coach for the Florida State Seminoles. Only a few days after Jimbo Fisher had announced that he would leave Florida State, in order to become the Head Coach at Texas A&M, FSU found their new Head Coach(take note Tennessee).
Taggart who lead Oregon to a 7-5 record this Year is a native of Bradenton, Florida and was the former Head Coach of the USF Bulls, which he lead to a 10-2 record in his fourth and final season in Tampa. He will face the challenge of restoring FSU’s former glory after an extremely disappointing season that finished with a 6-6 record.
Taggart will have a stacked roster at his hands, lead by Quarterback Deondre Francois, who will return after he lost this season to an injury. Even though Star Safety Derwin James decided to leave for the NFL the Defense will still have enough talent to hold up in the ACC. There is lots of hope surrounding the program but the expectations will be extremely high for the Neo Head Coach
