The Eight Candidates to Replace Willie Taggart

Willie Taggart | NCAA | College football

So it happened. After losing to Miami with a score of 10-27, the Florida State dismissed Willie Taggart. For incomplete two seasons as head coach, his result was 9-12. It's time to ask who will come to replace him. We will take a word to the sports director of the program, David Coburn, who said that the candidacy of Urban Meyer is not considered, and we will not include the eminent coach in the list.

Who is left?

Bob Stoops (Dallas Renegades)

Stoops currently works as a trainer for the XFL Dallas Renegades. He is 59 years old and for a career in college football, his result is 190 wins with 48 defeats. In 2000, he led Oklahoma to the championship. Stoops also worked with Steve Spurrier in Florida, where he served as assistant coach and defense coordinator. He is one of the most well-known experts and may well bring revitalization to the ACC conference.

Matt Campbell (Iowa State)

Campbell in Iowa State achieves a better result with less resources. The team is one step away from the third consecutive successful season. He is a great motivator and proved his skills in the difficult tournament of the Big-12 conference. The existing team composition will not be a problem for him, but there are certain questions for him regarding recruiting.

Joe Brady (BJC)

In each season, there is always one who is mentioned in connection with any vacant seat of the head coach. This is now the coordinator of the LJC attack Joe Brady. He re-rebuilt the Tigers attack and helped make Joe Burrow a challenger for the Heisman Trophy. If he manages to do the same in the Florida State, where James Blackman, Alex Hornibrook and Deondre Francois are having problems, Clemson may again have a competitor.

Dave Clawson (Wake Forest)

He would be an interesting candidate, given that both programs are in the same division. Unlike the Florida State, Wake Forest confidently spends the fourth consecutive season and has already secured participation in the bowls. Clawson’s team is now the only one who can challenge Clemson’s hegemony. But what if you give him more resources?

Mike Norvell (Memphis)

Memphis, led by Norwell, continues to fight for New Year's bowls and scores at least eight victories for the fourth consecutive season. This may not be the biggest name, but it might be the right choice.

P. J. Fleck ( MN) 

Fleck took his team to a new level, building a powerful defense and a good offensive attack. Minnesota began November undefeated. In past matches with rivals in Big-10, the team has a difference of points of +134. He also has work experience in Western Michigan, which he completely rebuilt. In 2013, the result of the Broncos was 1–11, and in 2016 it was already 16–1. He has rather unconventional methods of work, but they give a result.

Josh Heupel (Central Florida)

Another good specialist who knows how to build a game in attack. In Central Florida, his result is currently 19 wins with three defeats. He has also worked for programs such as Oklahoma, Arizona, and Missouri.

Lane Kiffin (Florida Atlantic)

Kiffin managed to restart his career at a new job and is ready to go on the rise. He also knows how to work with quarterbacks, which is important for the Florida State. Perhaps he is the one who the team lacks for progress.
