Florida State fires Willie Taggart

Recommended Posts

He only got two years to clean up Jimbo's turds..... What a shame.

Memo to CDC.....  It can be done.   But in our case it's picking up turds from three different coaches including the one who is currently overfilling the toilet bowl.

Taggart cleaned up on that one... he wasn't going to turn around that heap anytime soon. Might as well take a long vacation and go consult with Saban or something.

Wow not even 2 years,  that's a bad look for FSU, course Taggart was only at Oregon for a year before he bailed so not much sympathy

In case you were feeling bad for him:

 

 

 

 

Also, he's a piece of shit for convincing those USF recruits to follow him to Oregon, only to bounce on them 1 year later and stranding them there.

I doubt he would take an assistant position but I’d live to see him on the Texas staff.  He has the reputation as a good recruiter.

Good luck hiring someone else after this.

Any team willing to pay a dude ~ $26 million to coach less than 2 years is probably not going to have trouble finding another taker.

Is he really a piece of shit for this?  I’d rather be on Oregon’s team than FSU.  Seems like those recruits got the better end of the stick

Beck is but Orlando isn’t.  
 

I don’t have a problem with Beck as the QB coach with his recruiting abilities.

Buyouts don't mean anything when things get as bad as they were at FSU

Now USF can take him back and pull another Charlie type contract deal.

Better that than to pay for an albatross of a contract. Can you imagine if your school was paying a guy $75m guaranteed over 10 years and hadn't sniffed even as much as a division championship?

FSUs performance on the field the last 2 years was a bad look for FSU.

Why?  $18mm going away prize would be a better than trivial parting gift.

He used up his first Power 5 opportunity and shot his wad with the staff he brought with him to Oregon.  That was an excellent staff.  The guys he brought to Fla St are 3rd and 4th tier guys. Regardless it's always bad karma to leave a school after only one year on the job.  Bad decision coach.

It was a strange hire by UO from the start.  The Pac NW wanted a man who's entire career was in FL?  I cannot imagine Phil Knight thought it would last as long as Belloti and CKelly.

I'll cut him a bit of slack on taking the job, it was his actual dream job, the sort of chance that very rarely comes up. The rest of it... yeah, woof.

The difference between proven elite coaches and second tier coaches is huge.  The difference between 2nd tier and everyone else is in the noise.  Unless you are hiring a Saban or Meyer, big buyouts are unnecessary and stupid.  99% of coaches are easily replaceable with as good or better.  Their agents should be told if he wants the job there will be no fully guaranteed contract, and when they walk then you go to the next guy.

Hearing some people maybe shopping for a big old bag of dicks in Tallahassee.  

Well, that would be interesting. Now we just need a Pirate rumor to be complete.
