Willie Taggart says he's committed to OR as rumors swirl around Florida

Willie Taggart-103017-GETTY-FTR

It appears Florida wasn't kidding when it announced it wanted to have a new coach by early signing period. Heitner was among the first to report that Florida was set to break ties with Jim McElwain, which happened Sunday.

The Ducks (5-4, 2-4 Pac-12 Conference) will face the No. 12 Washington at Husky Stadium on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. PT, televised on FS1.

The 41-year-old Taggart, a Florida native, is in his first year at Oregon.

"The only AD I've been contacted by is Rob Mullens", he said Monday, per Rob Moseley of GoDucks.com.

(DOW) Lowered by The Zacks Investment Research to Hold
Steve Cohen decreased its stake in Dow Chem Co (DOW) by 99.5% based on its latest 2017Q2 regulatory filing with the SEC. However, profit (as reported) slid year over year, hurt by charges related to the Dow Corning ownership restructure.

"Last week we thought the way we used him was a good way for Taj, we've got to continue to find ways to get him the ball", says Taggart. His offense in his final two seasons at South Florida - a team he coached to a 24-25 record from 2013-16 - was one of the most potent in the nation.

With Florida off to a disappointing 3-4 start to 2017, including three straight losses, the program could use someone with experience turning things around in a hurry.

Also worth noting when considering why Taggart would be happy in Eugene: He and his staff are putting together quite the recruiting class, per the 247Sports composite.
