OR player sounds off on Willie Taggart's move to Florida State

Perhaps the most profound moment that sealed the deal for Taggart to leave OR after just one season for the vacant Florida State coaching job was a conversation with his 16-year-old son, Willie Taggart Jr., on Sunday night. Taggart made it clear on Wednesday that he's going to take advantage of FSU's bowl practices to evaluate not only the Seminoles' players, but also the assistant coaches.

Taggart has a 47-50 career record, including 7-5 this season, but is known as a rebuilder.

OR linebacker Troy Dye portrays his former head coach Willie Taggart as a liar.

After thanking OR boosters Phil Knight and Pat Kilkenny, as well as athletic director Rob Mullens and UO president Michael Schill, for giving him his first job in a Power Five conference, he called himself sorry for leaving so quickly - 15 days before recruits can sign national letters of intent. On Monday night, after making an appearance at FSU's men's basketball game against Loyola, Taggart was already heading out on the recruiting trail. "We watched the 'Noles first, then everyone else". A day later, Florida State president John Thrasher said that Taggart's decision had been a "no-brainer".

"I feel bad because you feel like you let him down and I know I did", Taggart said in Tallahassee, referring to Mullens. "The timing is probably not right, but it's never right when it's time to leave". Some fun facts about the Ducks' interim head coach.

Florida State went 6-6 this year - its worst record during the Fisher era - and barely made a bowl game, winning its final three games of the season just to finish with a.500 record. Florida State is a dream job for any coach, especially one who hails from the Florida area.

Oregon's class, which was ranked No. 1 by Scout before Taggart was courted by Florida State, has slipped to No. 9 with four prospects decommitting.

But other members of the talented group vowed to stay together and join the Ducks if some of the coaches who recruited them stay on at Oregon.

From 2007 to 2012 he was the head coach at Florida International. "I wanted him to come here, too", Gloria Taggart said. Again, I know, growing up, guys wanted to be a 'Nole.

Oregon's first practice since Taggart left will be on Saturday. There's nothing I can do about it, it's not in my control.
