Report: Florida State on track to hire new coach by end of season

Florida State logo

The Florida State Seminoles are in the middle of a search for a new head football coach after firing Willie Taggart midseason, and they are on track to make a hire by the end of the season, according to a report.

The Athletic’s Tashan Reed reported on Friday that Florida State has held in-person interviews and is on track to make a hire by the end of the season.

Reed also suggests that current Seminoles coaches on staff are working to ensure their recruiting does not completely fall off since Taggart was fired.

Though Taggart was not having success on the field, his recruiting was always strong, so keeping the recruits committed is a big task.

In addition to their coaching pursuit, Florida State’s athletic director is soliciting more donations from boosters to help pay buyouts, and to fund new facilities and facility upgrades. They’re seeking $100 million. Taggart alone is owed a massive buyout due to how quickly he was fired — he was just in his second season as the team’s head coach.
