Florida State now has a replacement for coach Jimbo Fisher, hiring Oregon's Willie Taggart on Tuesday afternoon.

Taggart has previous head coaching stops at Western Kentucky (16-20 overall record in three years), South Florida (24-25 overall record in four years) before he accepted the OR head coaching job last December. Before joining OR this season, Taggart spent four years at USF and three years at Western Kentucky.

Less than a year after Willie Taggart inspired the Ducks with his tagline "Do Something", Oregon is searching for a new head coach.

Aaron Boone to be named next manager of Yankees
According to George King of the NY Daily News - Meulens and Boone are the favorites and Beltran has an outside shot. Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees.

Taggart will become the first full time African-American head coach in program history, as he takes over for interim head coach and longtime FSU football player and coach Odell Haggins - who broke that barrier when he led the Seminoles to a win over Louisiana Monroe this past weekend.

Taggart has a 47-50 career record, including 7-5 this season, but is known as a rebuilder. The Bradenton, Fla., native led South Florida to a 10-2 record and top-25 finish in 2016 before accepting the OR job.

Taggart, a former running backs coach at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh, helped turn around programs at Western Kentucky and South Florida in his first two head coaching jobs. However, before their bowl game in 2012, he was hired by USF to be their next head coach. That matchup with Boise State is set for Saturday, December 16. From there, the Ducks lost four of their next five after an injury to starting quarterback Justin Herbert.

The Willie Taggart era at OR is over after just one season.

His record was an impressive 25-9 his past three seasons of coaching, and he earned his teams three consecutive bowl berths. In eight seasons, Fisher went 83-23 (.783) and guided the Seminoles to three ACC titles as well as the 2013 national championship.
