Willie Taggart slated as FSU's new head coach

Nov 18 2017 Eugene OR USA Oregon Ducks head coach Willie Taggart walks on the field before the game against the Arizona Wildcats at Autzen Stadium

Cristobal's task, now, will be to prep up the Ducks for their Las Vegas Bowl showdown with Boise State on December 16 as OR goes about their coaching search.

The Florida State Seminoles have found their new head coach.

Taggart comes to Tallahassee after one year as head coach at the University of Oregon.

At Oregon, Taggart's team was averaging 49.6 points per game as it got off to a 4-1 start.

Taggart will try to take an extremely talented roster that underachieved last season back into national title contention.

He was convicted back in august on two counts and another charge of conspiracy to commit securities fraud . TMZ spoke to his attorney, Ben Brafman , who told them, "Our position is clear".

The Seminoles have reportedly agreed to a deal with OR head coach Willie Taggart. How long will OR take to get a new coach? Taggart went 2-10 in his first years at both schools, but quickly righted the ship. But FSU rebounded and won four of five down the stretch to continue the program's record bowl streak to 36 consecutive years.

However, those mixed messages are done: Taggart is the third full-time coach at Florida State since 1976, when Bobby Bowden first took over. Why hire someone who has a sub.500 career record at 47-50? He would later spend three seasons as the running backs coach at Stanford before returning to his alma mater in 2010 as head coach, where he spent three seasons and led them to their first bowl game in modern history. The money Taggart is getting and what his coaching staff will look like is not yet known.

Oregon's potentially historic class is beginning to slide.

Florida State finished this season 6-6 and will play Southern Miss in the Independence Bowl.
