On Friday, Taggart shot down rumors of interest in the Seminoles job.

Since Florida State launched its search, Willie Taggart has been the top candidate, presumably.

In his final season with USF - 2016 - Taggart led the Bulls to a 10-2 record, and a bowl victory over SC. Let's start from his beginnings in Bradenton, Florida.

The former Western Kentucky quarterback has especially shown an ability to develop high-powered offenses at multiple locations.

Following graduation, he was hired as an assistant coach at Western Kentucky under Jack Harbaugh, where he served from 1998 until 2006. It's unclear who OR will hire to replace Taggart.

Taggart grew up in Florida and coached at the University of South Florida before joining the Ducks. He went 7-5 his final two years at WKU and won 10 games in 2016 with USF.

Willie Taggart is headed home. In his one year as the OR head coach, the 41-year-old improved the Ducks from 4-8 to 7-5, ensuring their bowl eligibility this season.

And now he's the Seminoles' next head coach.

It didn't take Florida State long to react; less than a week after Jimbo Fisher's departure from the school, FSU has his replacement. Why hire a man who has made four bowl appearances in eight seasons as a head coach? He has also led both Western Kentucky and OR to quick turnarounds. Will he do any different with the garnet and gold? Taggart's mother and most of his family still live in Florida. Asked if he planned to be the coach of the Ducks in the Las Vegas Bowl on December 16, Taggart said, "Why wouldn't I be?"
