Less than one week after Jimbo Fisher resigned from Florida State for Texas A&M, the Seminoles have a new head coach.
Florida State hires Oregon's Willie Taggart as new head coach. https://t.co/f5Yu7jVgss

That’s right—Oregon’s Willie Taggart is moving on. And in the process, inheriting a Florida State team that would only finish 6-6 this past season. In Taggart’s lone season with Oregon, the Ducks would struggle to a 7-5 finish. Also, they would finish just 4-5 in Pac-12 play—good for only fourth in the Pac-12 North.
Is this hire what Seminoles fans are looking for? Maybe not. But, we will know soon enough whether it was the right hire. Success doesn’t happen overnight.
