OR players rip Willie Taggart for lying about Florida State interest

"I kind of think, like [Coach Taggart] told me, it was like a no-brainer to come to Florida State", Thrasher said, to loud applause and laughter. Taggart talked extensively about being closer to home, and he mentioned his late father, saying, "I feel like I'm here now because of my dad, he put the word in to the good Lord, please get my son be closer to home and closer to his mom".

While Oregon is seen as a destination job to some, Taggart is a Florida native who built his coaching reputation during a four-year run at South Florida.

Students also feel this will have a negative impact on the next recruiting class.

The Ducks went 7-5 in Taggart's lone season in Eugene, an improvement of three wins over their down 2016 campaign. "I want our defense to back to where Florida State defense has been in the past", Taggart said.

OR players aren't the only ones who felt mislead by a coach leaving this week. He sued USF and received a $2.75 million settlement.

Cristobal joined OR in January.

"If Mr. Mullens hires (Cristobal) or (Leavitt) as Oregon's permanent head coach, you'll have the 2018 brotherhood back together, the original one!" "Keep the staff & keep the class".

Some possible outside candidates Mullens could pursue include former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, former Florida coach Jim McElwain, Fresno State coach Jeff Tedford and Boise State coach Bryan Harsin. 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. It started last Thursday with the knowledge that FSU was interested in him, Taggart said. 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".

By all accounts, Taggart could not have made a better first impression. All of the assistants will coach through the bowl game.

Across the country, not all Ducks players and recruits agreed.

Taggart said, "My 16-year old son came in, out of nowhere, and said, 'Dad, I know you are struggling with this decision and it is your dream job". He coached at Miami as the tight ends coach prior to that and spent three years at Rutgers in the early 2000's.
