    He didn't even make it two seasons. What a disaster.

    They better have a good minority candidate in mind after giving Taggart less than two seasons. The pitchforks will be out otherwise.

    He should have never been hired. Nothing on his resume stood out: USF, Western Kentucky, and one year at Oregon.... ok?

    Who didn't see that coming? They did the right thing by cutting bait now.

    Patenaude needs to apply. If they hired Taggart in the first place, he's got a nonzero probability.

    Bad timing by FSU. Transfer portal would apply to next season.

    I’m very surprised. Thought FSU would stick with him because of the SJW backlash

    When their original dynasty fell apart after 2000, they spent 12 years languishing in purgatory before they made it back into the national conversation. In the next five seasons they won an Orange Bowl, won a BCS title game, lost a CFP Rose Bowl, lost a Peach bowl, and won another Orange Bowl. They followed this stunning return to form with a trip to Shreveport in 2017 and no bowl at all in 2018. I can't think of another program that has had such drastic highs and lows in such a short timeframe. If they don't get this hire right, they might be in the basement for the foreseeable future.

    I know these contracts are in theory justified by 'crootin, but man that buyout of $17 million.

    FSU should steal Wake Forest’s coach and start averaging 50 points a game in conference.

    AD’s that listen to hysterical fan bases to fire coaches quickly destroy programs on the field. Those that do not listen to those fans destroy attendance and giving. Taggart has now been fired at an incredibly high cost without anyone knowing what his team would have looked like in years 4, 5, and 6. In year 6 your fifth year players are ones you signed afeter at least one year of recruiting them. Year 6 is when you really know what you have.

    If I were an AD I would offer a six year contract. I would resist extensions due to the success of the coach in the early years when the coach is playing athletes recruited by the past regime. But, I would work in significant bonuses to the head coach and staff for early successes to keep them happy. Early buyouts would be expensive both ways.

    Then, I would stand my ground and give every coach we bring in time to get the program built their way. In the long run, this would be the best way to build long term success. If poor performance merits firing in the middle of a second season, it would be interesting to list some of the coaches who would have been canned. I know at Tech it would have meant firing Bobby Ross.
