Florida State reportedly hiring Oregon's Willie Taggart to replace Jimbo Fisher

Florida State University and Taggart, the current OR and former University of South Florida coach, have reached agreement on a deal. I can't fault him for that.

Once Fisher was officially on to Texas A&M and Florida State's regular season was complete following a rescheduled game against Louisiana-Monroe, the school's first football coaching search in four decades moved quickly as officials worked to lure Taggart back to his home state.

In his first season coaching the Bulls, Taggart only went 2-10, but he doubled his wins in the next year going 4-8 in 2014. Willie Taggart is a fixer.

"A lot of great coaches were interested in FSU and though it was the place they wanted to be", Burr said.

It hasn't even been a year since Taggart held his introductory press conference at OR, replacing Mark Helfrich. When you consider the recruiting damage Taggart was able to do from thousands of miles away, it stands to reason that things should be a breeze now that he's recruiting to a storied program located within his favorite recruiting ground. That likely has a lot to do with why Florida State made him a priority. He will also likely not see OR through until the end of the season.

OR co-OC and OL coach Mario Cristobal will serve as interim head coach. When Herbert returned, the Ducks won their final two games over Arizona and rival Oregon State to clinch a bowl berth. As it turns out, the wait for the next head coach didn't take all that long like officials promised.

Taggart is also known for bringing in elite recruiting classes and knows the Florida circuit as well as anyone. Current OC Mario Cristobal will be an option for the Ducks.
