Willie Taggart says coaching at Florida State is his 'dream job'

Willie Taggart was met with raucous applause and acceptance on Wednesday when the new head coach of the Florida State Seminoles arrived in Tallahassee to greet the masses.

Taggart revealed the timetable that led the Wednesday's press conference.

Taggart discussed his Palmetto roots, Manatee High football, former head coach Joe Kinnan and neighborhood friend Peter Warrick, who played at Southeast and FSU before an NFL career, during his press conference. While that is not at all unusual for a man tabbed with leading a blue blood program, Taggart elected to leave the Oregon Ducks without a head coach and, apparently, that is not going over well with everyone. FSU athletic director Stan Wilcox called Taggart on Sunday to, "catch up".

"Freshman safety Nick Pickett tweeted that "(Taggart) is a liar, then gone cry (in) front of the team like we gone feel bad for em".

Fisher was later asked why he would have left what appeared to be a comfortable set up at FSU, to which he replied: "And then my relationship with Scott, the ability to come back and work and relive that vision of things that we had did before at LSU, I think it was a no-brainer in a insane way", Fisher said.

"I apologized (to everyone at Oregon) before I left". Some fun facts about the Ducks' interim head coach.

The 41-year old succeeds Jimbo Fisher, who left for Texas A&M Monday after 11 seasons with FSU, including eight as head coach.

Cristobal, Oregon's co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, is one of the nation's top assistants and recruiters.

Taggart also hopes to return Florida State's defense to the tenacious group he was enamored with as a youngster.

"There's a number of coaches on our staff that have head coaching capability", Mullens said Tuesday.

Cristobal joined OR in January. "We want to have a diverse pool, a broad pool, and we will have that". It started last Thursday with the knowledge that FSU was interested in him, Taggart said.

The Ducks (7-5) play No. 25 Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl at Sam Boyd Stadium (12:30 p.m., ABC). "It's frustrating having three coaches in three years".

"We just have to come out and practice, prove ourselves ... take this new coach, whoever they hire, and trust him to do the best we can".
