Sorry FSU, but you cant leave race out of this

This whole mess is very bad optics for FSU... especially in race relations. They made it about race when they chose to only consider a minority candidate. They got their man, and are now possibly looking to can him after only a year and a half on the job?!!! That is not fair to any coach, regardless of race. This is unheard of... and to do it to a minority coach?!!! FSU does not deserve a pass for this and should be called out on it. Me thinks FSU recruiting is about to take a huge hit from this.

Fire them. I don't see an issue here. Did the contract say he can't be fired within 18 months?


A year and a half is not a fair amount of time

Its widely accepted that a coach needs 3 to 4 so he can get his players in. Then theres the whole excuse that Jimbo left a dumpster fire for Taggert to clean up. If there is any truth to that, its criminal to talk about firing the guy before his 2nd season is complete.

Their loss to Boise was by 5 points, UVA by 7, and to Wake by 2 so every loss other than Clemson was actually close and competitive.

It is widely accepted that a coach needs 3-4 years to get the program performing at a high level. It is also widely accepted that an incoming coach of a relatively successful team loaded with talent should at least be moderately competitive after year 1. This guy is woefully unqualified for his position and it has absolutely nothing to do with race.

Thought once he made it clear he was heading to Nebraska, only then did they move on to Taggart.

So not sure race had anything to do with the hire. They likely simply thought he was an up and coming coach who had won everywhere he had been and had Oregon on the rise.

very respectable. His overall record doesn't tell much of the story. The question was really whether or not that would translate to a traditional power and so far it has not.

My take on Taggart right now is that he's an organizational guy that will get the culture and recruiting back on track at FSU, but i don't think he's a particularly good scheme/game coach. Whoever takes over FSU once Taggart is gone will likely find the program in better shape than what Taggart inherited from Jimbo.

posts we get sometimes, where people just try to stir the pot? Contrary to popular belief, everything isn't about race. In fact, the FSU situation has ZERO to do with race, and EVERYTHING to do with results.

How do you know the players didn't go to the AD or president and tell them they don't want to play for the guy? It's obvious he can't remedy the culture of listless play and downright quitting that began permeating that program 2 years before Fisher left. And they haven't signed a QB in 2 YEARS, other than getting Hornibrook to transfer. And as things stand right now, they won't sign a QB in 2020.

Sometimes it doesn't take '4 years' to realize a guy can't cut it as a HC at a given school or organization. Taggart is lost, and any rational, knowledgeable person can see it.


So only looking to hire a minority coach had nothing to do with race?

Dumping Taggart isn't about race and their recruiting will snap back quickly when they hire a legit coach worthy of the position.

FSU has deep fan and recruiting roots that won't be affected when they fire Taggart.

He was hired specifically to come in and clean up Jimbo's mess. The results on the field have been poor, no doubt. But is he entirely to blame for that? No.

The report was common knowledge and discussed in numerous public settings on the web.

You are correct. Rightly or wrongly, if FSU decides to part ways with Taggart, then there will be many who claim he was fired because he is black.

No one will publicly admit it, but the power brokers who will make the final decision will be aware of the reaction people will have.

"He was fired because he is black."

Oversimplification.

When you cast your hiring net over only black candidates, the disaster that ensues may have been caused by the prejudice you started with.

Insufficient data to reach a credible conclusion. But the disaster rate is higher when limiting the hiring net like that.

Sure you can leave race out of it. Are you trying to say that they didn't find a good coach because they

I'm not the OP, but I would say that is the exact opposite of what should be concluded. But we have insufficient data.

IMO, they hamstrung Taggart by publicly communicating that they were looking for a black candidate. That implied that whoever they hired was not going to be Mr "Best Possible Candidate." It also made people wonder if they thought they were so good that they didn't need the BPC, or if there was some social experiment going on that was more important than winning.

It reminded me of when the Falcons hired Jim Mora Jr to become Micheal Vick's buddy instead of his coach, and suddenly the lawless-looking thuggish behavior spread to the non criminals, too, instead of stopping. Because buddy or not, the HC still has to hold people accountable, and Mora wasn't doing it.

I think Taggart can still make a difference, but if he does it will be because he is their coach, not their buddy. Maybe he already is, IDK, but I hope he has more positive effect soon. I think the behavior and effort is better than Jimbo's last year, but these kids can't play as well.

The ACC needs at least one strong program in FL, and I think Tags is a better coach and man than Manny Diaz. So good luck, Tags.

I understand the perception that looking for a black man, might appear that you are not looking for the best possible candidate, but maybe the thought was that a black coach could recruit better or interact better with the players. There are considerable differences with a powerhouse football program, but I have often thought it would make sense for lower tier basketball programs to give a little bump to a black coach (for the record, I'm white). In basketball, one recruit can make a huge difference and the assistants play lesser roles, so I don't know how comparable the thought process might be, but nothing says that the FSU administration may not have had that mindset. Regardless of the thought process, I think that it was probably thinking that a black coach would have made a better fit, rather than an "affirmative action" type of response. There's just too much money involved to be settling on someone because of their color.

Because I don't think the consideration of color was a product of discrimination, I don't see why you would look at anything other than performance when deciding whether to keep him. I think it boils down to why they made race a consideration, and the fact that they did may leave them with some questions to answer. However, the only thing that should be considered at this point is what is best for their program.

That's what both I and the OP were saying (I think): he was recycling the hiring criteria, not complaining about discrimination.
I don't think he or I ever called Taggart an AA hire. An AA hire is when you take an unqualified person over a qualified one in order to meet AA statistical guidelines. No doubt Tags was qualified, and might actually have been the BPC.

My point was that by publicly stating that they wanted a minority, they communicated that they wanted, as you say, ' a coach that can interact better with the players.' I called it being their buddy. That communicates that the university

The problem is that college student-athletes need leadership and discipline as much as they need teddy-bear hugs. They must be held accountable for their performance on the playing field, the practice field, the weight room and the classroom. Dancing in the locker room can only go so far. Tags is in a spot where he must use both the rod and carrot liberally, and the good judgment when to use neither but challenge the players to have high expectations for themselves.

right about now. FSU's recruiting doesn't stink like their record does - even incoming. It's not up to their standards all around though but they haven't been investing heavily recently anyway.

And spoiler alert - their #1 candidate would be Jeff Scott were it to happen now til the end of 2020.

I think 2 things can be true at once: Willie is clearly not the guy (as many like myself predicted) BUT they can’t fire him after this year because of a couple reasons. 1.) you are correct that from a public perception/optics standpoint, firing your first black head coach after only 2 years is going to cause some PR problems 2.) that stupid propaganda piece they put out blaming everything on Jimbo in early August certainly would take some mental gymnastics to be able to turn around 4 months later and say it’s all Willie’s fault 3.) they actually have a decent recruiting class this year currently. Not great by FSU standards but pretty good for all the mess that has been going on in that program (also could be ripe for decommits) and if you fire Willie you most certainly have 3 straight very down recruiting classes which sets you back even further.

TLDR they need to fire him but it might not be able to do it this year

Not a big fan of Taggart and I do believe he was unprepared for that job BUT that said the culture of that program is still morphing so with all due respect he still has an uphill job getting rid of the thugs & malcontents & underachievers on that team. Thank Jimbo for that and he will do the same for aTm. Give Willie 2 more years. The consequences to FSU long term will be worse if he’s fired this year

I think the honor code at A&M is enough to keep the athletes in line.

Jumbo might have found one of the only schools in America where a poor disciplinarian can succeed.

Wait...did somebody just whisper "Johnny Manziel"?
