According to USA Today’s Dan Wolken, it would cost Florida State $21.25 million to get rid of Taggart at the end of this season. And that doesn’t include how much guaranteed money the school would owe his assistants.
I wouldn't count on them coming up with that much cash anytime soon. Glad that they are all in on Taggart. The early results are promising.
I’d be careful about this. Taggert is a recruiter first and foremost. He’s not currently known as a game coach and may never be, but he should be judged in year 3 when his kids are in place. I don’t know if he’ll last that long because FSU fans probably make Texas fans look downright liberal but anybody objective knew that the talent level had dropped and they were hiring a guy who is not known as a game coach. I’d love to see him run off now because it’ll wreck their class and hurt them with the black kids and high school coaches and parents throughout the State for years to come.
“I think there are some key components for our football team that aren't playing for us right now. And we're very thin in some areas. And it is what it is. I'm not making excuses, that's just the facts, and it's real. I think we've got a good staff and I think that we've got a really good football team. They're fighting their butt off this Saturday, first of all, and heading into spring. And I'm excited about that. I'm excited about this Saturday and our guys getting out and competing again."
