Florida State fires Willie Taggart

Recommended Posts

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?
Honestly, who would do that?

Hearing some people maybe shopping for a big old bag of dicks in Tallahassee.  
I dont see him at his age going in to a mess like that. He's 60ish.

It would he hilarious if FSU hires Urban before USC gets the chance to do it. 
That would actually be fun watching dabo and urbs going at it year after year.

It’ll be 6 more seasons before aggy can get rid of jimbo for less than it just cost fsu to get rid of taggert, who is the 2nd most expensive firing ever.

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.  

Especially Oregon where you will get full booster support.

Wait. I thought the Athletic Director binder stipulates failing coaches have an opportunity to re-hire the entire assistant coaching staff, then “hope” and watch how “things play out” for another three years until eventual termination. Why would fsu do such a thing?

If I were FSU alumni I'd think that was money well spent.  Then  I'd recommend calling Earl and see who he recommends for a new coach.

I dunno maybe because he’s never had a winning record and “playing school” isn’t exactly a priority at FSU?

Good luck hiring someone else after this.

FSU?  They’ll be fine. I don’t get why y’all insist on some kind of 3/4-year minimum fantasy. If a coach can’t prove they can do it in Year 2, unless there are extenuating circumstances, like Teddy Bridgewater or Cam Newton, you’re not going to turn it around. Most coaches generally know this and so FSU won’t have any issue hiring the best replacement possible  

Good for them for pulling the trigger.

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.   

You are and idiot and it completely contradicts the point you just made.

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. 

 

Are those recruits still at Oregon?  If so, they're on the #7 team right now.  I could think of worse fates.

Sad news.  I just wish they had given him a chance.  He needed time to get his own guys

What I’m hearing is Bob Stoops as head coach. He’ll bring Venables with hiim as DC, with the idea that Venables assumes the position in a year or two. Briles will stay on as  OC if they can’t get Joe Brady from LSU.

$20 Million in private donations. Hey recruits, are you paying attention? That's a lot of potential "endorsements" for your "name, image, and likeness" if you commit to play for FSU. Times are changing.

Why not just go direct to Venables?

Wow. 17 million just to go away.

Reminds me of Billy’s chat with Dave Justice in the batting cage in Moneyball.

 

Justice: Yeah, well y’all are paying me $7.5million a year, so yeah, I am kind of a big deal.

 

Billy: Nah Dave, we’re not paying you all of that. The Yankees are paying half your salary.

 

Justice: What are you talking about?

 

Billy: Yeah man, that’s how the Yankees feel about YOU. They willing to pay $4 million to play AGAINST you from here on out. Now how does that make you feel?

No doubt. That's actually a brilliant idea, since Kendal is already there telling recruits about how FSU has the best white girls who love football players.
