Taggart to Oregon

Another AAC coach hired by a P5 :sweat:

Means Kiffin probably to USF (or Charlie Strong…I’d hire Strong if he wants it).

Strong would be a great choice.

I’d imagine Strong goes to Cincy.

USF: Willie Taggart will owe USF a $1.7 million buyout, per his contract.

USF: Brett McMurphy notes that the top candidates for the opening at USF are Florida State co-offensive coordinator Lawrence Dawsey, Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, and Ohio State associate head coach / defensive coordinator Greg Schiano.

Schiano sounds like a very good pick for them. He knows Florida recruiting well and did well at both Rutgers and tOSU.

I’d like to see Schiano at Temple, Charlie Strong at Cincinnati, Kiffin at USF and Riley or Miles at UH. Add P.J. Fleck as a wildcard for Cinci, Temple or USF.

If Kiffin didn’t like our buyout he won’t like USF’s. Buyouts usually don’t go lower after losing a coach.

P.J. Fleck wants P5 or will stay at Western Michigan. Atleast that was the initial response from his camp.

Oregon: Willie Taggart will get a 5-year deal worth around $3.2 million per season, according to multiple reports.
