Willie Taggart Leaving Oregon For Florida State

Dec 5, 2017

Willie Taggart is going to do something else.

After only one season as Oregon’s head coach, Taggart is leaving to accept the same position at Florida State, according to a Sports Illustrated report.

A source told The Register-Guard that Oregon’s players have been summoned to a 1:30 p.m. meeting Tuesday at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex to be informed of the news.

Just shy of a calendar year since Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens hired Taggart away from South Florida on Dec. 7, 2016, the 41-year-old Palmetto, Florida, native is heading back to his home state.
