Ducks offer new deal to Willie Taggart amid FSU speculation

Ducks offer new deal to Willie Taggart amid FSU speculation”

OR has offered coach WIllie Taggart a new contract with the hope that he'll stay in Eugene even if a coveted job in his home state opens this weekend, SI.com has learned.

OR has offered coach Willie Taggart a new contract with the hope that he'll stay in Eugene even if a coveted job in his home state opens this weekend, SI.com has learned. Taggart came to OR from South Florida after OR fired Mark Helfrich following the 2016 season.

There have been several moves in College Football over the last week highlighted by former Oregon Coach Chip Kelly heading to the UCLA Bruins and Sunday saw Dan Mullen moving from Mississippi State to Florida.

The offer comes amid speculation that Taggart, a Florida native, would be a strong candidate to become the next coach of the Florida State Seminoles should Jimbo Fisher leave. The Aggies have had eyes for Fisher since firing Kevin Sumlin over the weekend. There has been no official announcement of a contract extension by OR or Taggart, and the reported deal is unsigned at the moment.

Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated reports that OR has offered Taggart a "little more than $20 million over five years" to remain the coach of the Ducks.

Oregon finished the regular season 7-5 after beating Oregon State in the Civil War. The Ducks improved their win total under Taggart, but the improvement might have been more dramatic if not for a broken collarbone suffered by quarterback Justin Herbert that kept the sophomore out of five games. Before getting the job at Oregon, Taggart has previously served as head coach at South Florida and Western Kentucky.
