Florida State has called a news conference for Wednesday morning to introduce Taggart, who informed his OR players on Tuesday he is heading to Tallahassee to replace Jimbo Fisher.
Taggart has previous head coaching stops at Western Kentucky (16-20 overall record in three years), South Florida (24-25 overall record in four years) before he accepted the OR head coaching job last December.
Taggart landed at OR, replacing Mark Helfrich, after three seasons at his alma mater, Western Kentucky, and four at South Florida, where executed a turnaround from 2-10 in his first season to 10-2 in final year.

Before that he spent three seasons as head coach at his alma mater, Western Kentucky, inheriting a winless program that he turned around with back-to-back winning seasons.

Taggart has been a top target of Florida State since rumors of Fisher's departure for Texas A&M first surfaced.
