Willie Taggart is apparently planning to stay at Oregon, despite being rumored to be a top candidate for the head coaching position at Florida State.




Taggart tweeted that he was “looking forward to a great day tomorrow” with the Ducks in which the team would participate in “practice, find out where and who they play in the bowl game.” He also acknowledged that he would be present for the team banquet before heading “back on the road recruiting.”

On Saturday, Taggart denied interest in the FSU coaching position when speaking with media members on Saturday, according to Tony Piraro of SB Nation’s Addicted to Quack.

“There is nothing more to report. I’m sorry I can’t give you guys what you want. Social media sparked it. Social media is unbelievable.”

Taggart emerged as a favorite in FSU’s search after former head coach Jimbo Fisher agreed to a deal with Texas A&M on Friday, as first reported by Wayne McGahee of the Tallahassee Democrat.

Taggart joined Oregon this past offseason after leading South Florida to a 24-25 (18-14 AAC) record during four seasons, including a 10-2 (7-1) finish in 2016.
He led the Ducks to a 7-5 (4-5 Pac 12) record during his first season.
