Willie Taggart's STAFF Thread

Post

Just getting this going for all staff hires and rumors.


I can confirm that David Kelly will join the FAU staff in some compacity.

Kelly is formerly the recruiting coordinator at FSU and was the receivers coach in 2018.

Kelly has worked in similar roles with Taggart at USF and Oregon.

Oh boy here we go…

Hope it's off the field role. Recruiting is fine but he's worthless as a coach

Hopefully pimpleton and woodie flunkies arent next

Also Kelly long ago was let go by FSU. So no he isn't currently their recruitong coordinator.

Is Coach Spencer joining Willie at the coaches show a good sign of him staying on or a result of him being the “head coach” until Saturday night? 

Any buzz around who our coordinators might be?

Probably because he is the interim HC for the bowl game … Having watched the press conferences with Coach Spencer and I think he'll have the guys ready to play on Saturday.

I'm wondering if Willie is waiting until after the bowl game to make any announcements on his staff … it just seems to me that if he was holding on to any existing coaches it would have happen already.

I was thinking the same thing, try to keep things stable and announce staff after the game so not to disrupt too much.

I suppose if he is keeping him, and he announces it but doesn't announce anyone else is staying, it's pretty demotivating.

This is definitely a lesson in management and engagement, a tricky situation to navigate.

Just strange that we're not hearing any buzz about anything.

Not hearing any buzz shows that he is smart enough to keep it quiet. We all know how leaks can be twisted. I think you wait till after the game. Anyone not being retained won't know during the bowl game. I doubt  that anybody being retained even knows. Can't risk loose tongues.

It is an auto thing and no one runs the FAU site.
