Updated: Shortly after this post was published it was reported that Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher will become the next coach at Texas A&M.
Oregon coach Willie Taggart hasn't even received an offer to interview at Florida Sate but that hasn't stopped Oregon fans from taking to Twitter to ask him to stay put should one come his way.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher had been reportedly at least flirting with the idea of leaving the Seminoles to become the new coach at Texas A&M and the situation in Tallahassee, Fla., has reportedly become toxic.
Then today, it was being reported that Fisher indeed will head to Texas A&M. This makes it conceivable that FSU could go after Taggart. However, that link is mostly due to the fact that Taggart was born and raised in Palmetto, Fla. Nothing else. There is nothing to go on that says Taggart would receive an offer from FSU let alone be a top candidate for the position should it become available.
All of the speculation and uncertainty has led UO and FSU fans to take to Twitter in an effort to woo Taggart.
Here are some of the Tweets Oregon fans have sent Taggart's way:
Hey coach. Long time Duck fan and proud alum here. Let’s make a deal: you can’t leave until you get us out first National Title. Deal? 👊🦆❤️— Scott Eshleman (@BobDeal11) December 1, 2017
Please stay in Oregon. Go Ducks.— Chaim Hertz (@ChaimHertz) December 1, 2017
I don't think I can handle all these damn rumors...my blood pressure is out the roof with all of them!! Can it just be over already with you staying UGH!!!— Julia Brown (@nikeprincess69) December 1, 2017
Stay here in Oregon where you’re wanted and don’t have to please a boat load of angry boosters. FSU is a hell hole.— goschiemama (@Goschie) December 1, 2017
Coach, I say you also have an impact on the city of Eugene and the entire state of Oregon. As a black man who heads a very successful program, you are changing attitudes, ideas, and prejudices that have lived in this state for years. I truly hope you stay at Oregon. @CoachTaggart— Derek (@chewbacca510) December 1, 2017
@CoachTaggart No matter where life takes you it's been a great year. I have seen those boys become men under you in 1 year. I hope the ride continues for years to come. If it ends soon it's been a great adventure and I wish you all the best of luck. Throw the O Go Ducks.— Derrick Schubbe (@derrick_schubbe) December 1, 2017
rumors and outbursts are happening right now on facebook about Oregon football's new coach returning to FSU with his coaches in tow. Is this just rumor, or is taggart dumping Oregon to go back to Florida....Oregon ducks fans are in an uproar over this— cliff (@cgavicc) December 1, 2017
