The FSU football program is zeroing in on Oregon’s Willie Taggart for its head coaching vacancy.
According to Edward Aschoff of ESPN, Taggart is set to meet with Florida State officials on Monday to discuss the head coaching gig which was opened up after Jimbo Fisher left to take over at Texas A&M.
There is no word on whether Taggart is seriously considering the job, with the head coach previously stating he would like to remain with the Ducks.
However, if Florida State opens the check book, Taggart could jump ship after just one season in Eugene.
Taggart previously coached in Florida, leading the USF Bulls from 2013-16. Taggart, a Bradenton, Florida native, holds an overall head coaching record of 47-50. He previously coached at Western Kentucky, his alma mater, before heading to South Florida and ultimately leaving for Oregon.
