People close to Bob Stoops 'skeptical' he will take Florida State job

Bob Stoops makes comments after being introduced as the new head coach and general manager of the XFL Dallas football team during a news conference in Arlington Texas Thursday Feb. 7 2019

Hmm...so the FSU football boosters supposedly can come up with $20 million in seven days to get rid of a coach that many had issues with before he even coached his first game last season, but can't come up with that money to build a football only facility that has been talked about for almost a decade and now spanned two full time head coaches? His reported buyout is $17 million.

In the meantime, Odell Haggins will fill the role once again as Interim Head Coach.

He said the same thing as Murdock, that Stoops told him he was 'not a candidate'. I know they'll do well.

Taggart was a hot commodity when Florida State was searching for a successor to Fisher.


When asked about Florida State's recent move, Fisher said that he hated the move for everyone involved. "We will support our student-athletes in every way and do all we can to return to the winning tradition that is Seminole football".

Because the rumor mill involving the former Oklahoma coach and the Seminoles' opening already is spinning, with some reports suggesting a deal was almost finalized for him to replace Willie Taggart.

I don't doubt he'd be solid whether it be here, Florida State or pretty much at any other major program but at this point, save the national championship he won now 20 seasons ago, isn't he the same exact guy Brian Kelly is?

Taggart has a 56-62 record in 10 seasons as a head coach. He also coached Western Kentucky (2010-12) and South Florida (2013-16). However, it's still somewhat shocking that Willie Taggart's tenure with the program didn't even last two full seasons. "I wish him nothing but the best".
