Willie Taggart introduced as FSU's new football coach

Florida State introduces Willie Taggart as new head coach

Florida State announced Tuesday that Willie Taggart, the former coach at Western Kentucky, South Florida and OR, has agreed to become the next coach of the Seminoles' football team.

Ultimately, the pull of coaching the team who grew up rooting for just over 300 miles to the southeast of Tallahassee was too much to ignore as he signed a deal to become the next head coach of FSU football. He arrived in Eugene after four years at South Florida, where he guided the Bulls from a 2-10 record his first year to a 10-2 mark last year and a spot in the Birmingham Bowl. Taggart said that he always rooted for the Seminoles when he was coaching elsewhere, except in his days at South Florida. It was the Noles and the Bucs for Taggart and his family. Now he's fulfilling that lifelong dream. "I like to score fast", Taggart said. Taggart, however, is just the third Florida State head coach since 1976, which was the first season for former Seminoles coaching legend Bobby Bowden.

Taggart's Florida roots - he was a few years behind Nebraska star Tommie Frazier at Manatee High in Bradenton - have helped him make strong inroads in the state's prep football community. Now we're here today and I'm the coach for the Florida State Seminoles.

The smiles from Taggart, left, and Wilcox, right, say it all.

"I get a chance to evaluate, which is pretty cool ... usually when you are taking over, it's probably because someone got let go", he said.

Taggart, and Odell Haggins - Fisher's replacement on an interim basis - are the first black head football coaches at Florida State. He knows the state and its recruiting landscape. "But we're also a national brand and Florida State University don't have to settle for anything and we can go after the best of them nationwide, but we're going to take care of things at home".

Taggart revealed the timetable that led the Wednesday's press conference. But he said there was nothing else but interest.

"I apologized (to everyone at Oregon) before I left". "The people you meet, the relationships you built, it's always tough when you have to end that. They wanted it. I know he's going to do a good job here, and just to look up there and see my baby boy.it's going to be a good ride". "When he expressed this was his dream job, that did it for me".
