 Willie Taggart Jr., Western Kentucky, Player News

  Florida Atlantic fired Willie Taggart on Saturday, only hours after the end of a third consecutive five-win season and no bowl bid for the second time in that span. Taggart was 15-18 in his three seasons with the Owls - 5-4 in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, then 5-7 in each of the last two seasons. His finale was Saturday, a 32-31 overtime loss at home to his alma mater Western Kentucky. FAU is heading to the American Athletic Conference next season. “This evening, we made a change in leadership with the Florida Atlantic University football program,” FAU athletic director Brian White said in a release distributed by the school. “It was a difficult decision, as we have tremendous respect for Willie Taggart. He has represented FAU with class and character. However, the lack of on-field success needed to be addressed as we look toward the future.” White said the school would immediately begin a national search.

Taggart was brought in after Lane Kiffin left FAU for Ole Miss in 2019. Kiffin brilliantly revived his career at FAU, going 26-13 with a pair of Conference USA championships. Both FAU and Taggart hoped he had followed on the same path; he came to Boca Raton with a 56-62 record at four previous schools - Western Kentucky, South Florida, Oregon and Florida State. Taggart had a winning record at just one of those stops; he was 7-5 in his lone season at Oregon. He was 16-20 at Western Kentucky, 24-25 at USF and 9-12 at Florida State. He's had more 10-loss seasons (two) than 10-win seasons (one), has never been the head coach of a bowl win and has now missed qualifying for a bowl in 10 of his 13 seasons. He lost in his one bowl trip with USF, lost his only bowl trip with FAU, and left for Florida State before Oregon's trip to the Las Vegas Bowl in 2017. - AP College Football

  With the start of the season, FAU Willie Taggart and his son - Willie Taggart, Jr. - became the sixth current father-son, head coach-player duo at the same FBS school. "What's weird sometimes is when he calls me coach," Taggart said entering the season. "For 18 years I've been getting "dad", and now it's "coach". It's like "what are you doing buddy?" Other than that, it's no different." - Sun-Sentinel
