It was the Noles and the Bucs for Taggart and his family.

OR linebacker Troy Dye called Willie Taggart a liar as one of multiple Ducks players to call out their former coach on social media Wednesday.

Florida State went 6-6 this year - its worst record during the Fisher era - and barely made a bowl game, winning its final three games of the season just to finish with a.500 record. His son didn't want to leave OR, but told him, "If you're going to chase your dreams, I'm going to ride with you". I don't want to leave, Dad, but if you are going to chase your dream, I am going to ride with you'.

"And that meant a lot to me". From the outside, it would be impossible to tell him he's wrong.

"When (Willie) told me, 'This is my dream job, ' that sealed it for me", Wilcox said of Taggart, a Bradenton, Fla., native who grew up as a Seminoles fan.

Taggart ended his first meeting with the Florida State media and fans by apologizing to OR fans, while also explaining why he just couldn't say no to Florida State.

Taggart and his family are diehard Seminoles fans.

Taggart even wanted to play college football at Florida State, but he began his playing and coaching careers at Western Kentucky before spending four years rebuilding USF and this past season getting OR back on track.

First, Taggart was called out by Aaron Fentress of NBC Sports Northwest for misleading folks in Eugene by failing to disclose that he was in contact with Florida State before he actually said he was originally. Taggart talked extensively about being closer to home, and he mentioned his late father, saying, "I feel like I'm here now because of my dad, he put the word in to the good Lord, please get my son be closer to home and closer to his mom". "I knew we had found our guy". I know I let them down.

"People say, "What attracted you to Texas A&M?' First and foremost, it was (athletic director) Scott Woodward", Fisher said in his opening statement".

Taggart agreed to a six-year deal that will pay him $5 million annually.

The 41-year-old Taggart was formally introduced as the new leader of the Seminoles on Wednesday during a press conference at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Oregon's class, which was ranked No. 1 by Scout before Taggart was courted by Florida State, has slipped to No. 9 with four prospects decommitting.

"Excuse my language, but I want a damn good defense". A day later, Florida State president John Thrasher said that Taggart's decision had been a "no-brainer". We're not going to make excuses. We were a bunch of war daddies.

"It was really nice walking onto the field this morning, and walking to the 50-yard line, like, 'Yes, I made it.' " Taggart said. "And then, you see your picture up on the big Jumbotron and my name was spelled right". It was great. I'm excited and fired up right now, and I don't think it'll hit me until later on - especially when I get around the players a little more and build relationships.
