Can Oregon Football Keep Willie Taggart With A New Contract?

While the Seminoles are reportedly looking at several names to fill the spot, there is just one that needs to be given a serious look and an offer - OR head coach Willie Taggart. Taggart is reportedly being wooed by Florida State as a possible replacement for the outgoing Jimbo Fisher, but on Saturday night he tweeted, "Looking forward to a great day tomorrow with our team". While there are plenty of reasons why Taggart should be the next coach, here are the top three reasons he needs to be leading the Noles in 2018.

One of the hottest coaches on the market a year ago, Taggart went 7-5 in his first season in Eugene after building South Florida into a contender from 2013-16.

OR fans hoping Willie Taggart will remain in Eugene tried cobbling optimism from a tweet he sent out Saturday suggesting he was looking forward to the Ducks' bowl game and upcoming practice. His base salary this season was just under $3 million.
