Willie Taggart says coaching at Florida State is his 'dream job'

New Florida State head coach Willie Taggart took the Seminoles job after just one season at OR, and both Ducks players and some media members are none to happy about the decision.

Although the pull of going back home to the state of Florida coaching the Seminoles was too strong, some of the OR players took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the way Taggart handled himself in the time leading up to his departure from Oregon.

Just 12 days until the Las Vegas Bowl and OR head coach Willie Taggart is leaving the Pacific Northwest for the Atlantic Coast.

Well that's one way to send a coach out. "We watched the 'Noles first, then everyone else".

The Creek Fire north of downtown Los Angeles has burned 11,000 acres, while the smaller Rye Fire burned 7,000 acres. Three firefighters were injured and hospitalized in stable condition, the Los Angeles Fire Department said .

"Things were going really well there in every aspect", Taggart said.

The Ducks were 7-5 in Taggart's lone season and will play in the December 16 Las Vegas Bowl against No. 25 Boise State.

Fisher was later asked why he would have left what appeared to be a comfortable set up at FSU, to which he replied: "And then my relationship with Scott, the ability to come back and work and relive that vision of things that we had did before at LSU, I think it was a no-brainer in a insane way", Fisher said. He also said he doesn't see Florida State's 6-6 year as a sign it's in a rebuilding phase - but rather a "realignment".

The 41-year old Bradenton native coached at South Florida for four seasons before going to Oregon. "I wanted him to come here, too", Gloria Taggart said.

On Sunday, Peters was penalized for throwing a penalty flag into the stands against the Jets. "That's why he came back out". Against the Jets, Peters let his frustration boil over, picking up a referee's flag and launched it into the crowd.

"This is not a rebuild, it's a realignment". "Excuse my language but we were a bunch of bad asses back in the days".

Prior to going into coaching, Taggart was a quarterback at Western Kentucky, where his head coach was the legendary Jack Harbaugh - father of MI head coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.

However, it's not just OR players that have been chiming in on Taggart's seeming change of heart. "I know this is hard for him, hard for my family, moving once again". I apologize. The timing is probably not right, but it's never right when it's time to leave. The next day he tweeted - before deleting it - more: "Lost all words I could've been down the street from my house but came here off the strength of what you said". "But this job was a dream for me". I wanted to come up and play here, but I wasn't good enough. "But no matter where I went, the Seminoles were always a part of me".
