FSU Football: Odell Haggins Remaining On Seminoles Coaching Staff


The FSU football program announced on Tuesday that a key member of the coaching staff will be retained under new head coach Willie Taggart.

Longtime assistant coach Odell Haggins, who is a former FSU player who has been with the program for more than two decades, will remain in Tallahassee as the team’s defensive line and be an associate head coach.

“I am a Seminole for life,” Coach Haggins said in a statement.

“I’m thankful to Coach Taggart for giving me the opportunity to remain at my alma mater and am excited to be at Florida State University. It has been an incredible blessing to coach at the school I played at and have been coaching at most of my life. Coach Taggart and I are on the same page with our focus on doing the best we can to be a mentor and a father figure to these student-athletes. Everything we do is to help guide them as they develop on and off the field.”

Taggart added:

“Coach Haggins is Garnet and Gold through-and-through. He has done a remarkable job leading our team through the last game of the regular season and preparations for the Independence Bowl, and I have noticed how positively the student-athletes respond to him. He has an impressive resume of on-field results from his defensive linemen, but I’ve also been impressed with his ability to connect with our team on a personal level. He understands Florida State better than anyone, which will be a huge benefit to all of us as we implement our program at FSU.”

Haggins has proven throughout the years that he is more than capable of producing a solid unit and preparing players for the NFL.

This is great news for the Seminoles faithful and program moving forward.
