Willie Taggart is in only his first season as the head coach at Oregon, but that hasn’t stopped reports about him potentially leaving the Ducks from piling up.

With it looking like a legitimate possibility that Jimbo Fisher could leave Florida State to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M, Dan Wolken of USA Today reports that the Seminoles have started gathering information on Taggart.

Before he was hired by Oregon, Taggart had success at South Florida and showed he can win in the state despite a tough recruiting environment. That’s why he was previously linked to the Florida job after Jim McElwain was fired.

The Ducks are 7-5 this season after they finished 4-8 last year, and four of their five losses came when starting quarterback Justin Herbert was injured. Taggart is off to a great start in building a strong program at Oregon, and he recently addressed rumors about him being unhappy. It seems unlikely that he would leave after just one season.
