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

Taggart's previous head coaching stints came at Western Kentucky, South Florida and OR, where he spent just one season and went 7-5 this year before accepting the job at Florida State. 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.

During his introductory press conference at Florida State on Wednesday, Taggart said he apologized to Mullens on the way out of the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex.

"I feel like he kind of betrayed us, let us down.promised us a really good recruiting class. The timing is probably not right, but it's never right when it's time to leave".

The timing couldn't be much worse for OR with a bowl game to play on December 16 and an early recruiting signing period beginning on December 20. Some fun facts about the Ducks' interim head coach. Florida State is a dream job for any coach, especially one who hails from the Florida area.

Taggart shed tears as he discussed his family full of FSU fans, which included his brother, who rooted for the Noles even when Taggart coached South Florida against FSU. He also said he doesn't see Florida State's 6-6 year as a sign it's in a rebuilding phase - but rather a "realignment".

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.

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

He said Wednesday that when he got the call about Florida State's interest, it was a "dream come true" for him.

Oregon's first practice since Taggart left will be on Saturday. He said he always wanted to find his way here, so when he walked onto the 50-yard line at Doak Campbell Stadium for the first time, he raised his arms and shouted, "I made it". He'll have $5.5 million to pay assistant coaches. "I feel like our recruiting class is not going to be as good as it should have been in the coming years", said Lucas Murphy, a freshman at U of O. He coached at Miami as the tight ends coach prior to that and spent three years at Rutgers in the early 2000's.

"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".
