ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

Florida State University and Taggart, the current OR and former University of South Florida coach, have reached agreement on a deal. A Florida native, Taggart spent one year in Eugene, leading the Ducks to a 7-5 record and an appearance in the Las Vegas Bowl.

The 6-foot-3, 170-pound defensive back, out of Wesley Chapel High School (Zephyrhills, Florida), was the most likely prospect to decommit in Oregon's class if Taggart left for Florida State.

Taggart, who hails from Bradenton, Florida, has been a head coach in college football for eight seasons now. His energy, the coaches he brought on board, all made the difference and could still lead to an 8-5 season. Taggart also coached running backs at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh.

It hasn't even been a year since Taggart held his introductory press conference at OR, replacing Mark Helfrich.

When FSU football first announced that Jimbo Fisher had abandoned ship and was leaving for Texas A&M, school officials announced that a search would begin and the next head coach of the Seminoles would be hired as quickly as possible. He proved this time and time again at Western Kentucky, USF, and finally Oregon.

The Florida State football program has its new leader.

With Taggart now on board, Florida State can fully focus their attention on the Independence Bowl against Southern Mississippi on Saturday December 30th.
