The Ducks were 7-5 this season in Taggart's first year, but, according to The Oregonian, athletic department officials were growing impatient at the uncertainty surrounding his status.
Prior to coaching in Eugene, Taggart was the head man at South Florida.
Taggart, a Florida native, comes to Florida State after just one year at Oregon. Taggart has Coached in One Bowl Game with his team making a bowl now three times if you count Oregon. Shockingly, that already makes Mullen the fifth-longest serving coach in the Sunshine State.

Reviczky said. "Kind of a family Christmas tradition the day after thanksgiving", says Andy Shrake, Christmas tree buyer. As the number of trees making the cut each year shrinks, customers should expect to see a difference on price tags too.
According to multiple reports, Taggart is leaving OR to become the next coach at Florida State, a job left open when Jimbo Fisher went to Texas A&M. The landscape is different than it is in most places and high school coaches aren't as involved in the process as they are in other states. After ending WKU's 26-game losing streak and going 2-10 in his first season, he made strides while going 7-5 in both 2011 and 2012. Why hire someone who has a sub.500 career record at 47-50? Before that, he spent four seasons as the head coach at USF. Time for the Recruiting Class is of the essence.
It's impossible to foresee how Taggart will fare in a prestigious program like Florida State.
Oregon's potentially historic class is beginning to slide. Florida State is 6-6 this season and will face Southern Mississippi in the December 27 Independence Bowl.
