Taggert and Cristobal Mentioned for USF Job

Willie Taggart, 36, head coach, Western Kentucky: Bradenton Manatee graduate is former Stanford assistant, led WKU to upset at Kentucky and 7-5 record headed to program's first bowl game at Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl in Detroit. Has recruited state of Florida well from afar.

Mario Cristobal, 42, head coach, Florida International: Former Hurricanes player and assistant nearly got Rutgers job last year after upsetting Louisville and Central Florida. Panthers took step back in 2012 with disappointing 3-9 mark.

Five potential USF hires

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Hmmm...if I was a USF fan I wouldnt be excited about either.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Mario Cristobal turned down the Rutgers job. His stock has gone down this year after theyear's crappy record, and Rutgers will move the Big Ten. I wonder if he's having regrets?

Taggart is perfect for USF. Literally owns the west coast of Florida in recruiting.

Have to agree with ya.

And let's not forget Cristoballs 3 wins this year - Akron, S. Bama and FAU - wow, 6 wins combined there! I hope the coaches can show the local kid's and families Cristobals has "impressed" so far how bad that really is!

Ron Zook owned the state of Florida in recruiting.

Im not saying Taggart wouldnt be sucessful but I think USF fans would be eh about the hire.

Re: Taggert and Cristobal Mentioned for USF Job

In talking to some USF alumni and reading their board, they for the most part seem to like the idea of Taggert as HC, and even Cristobal as a Coordinator or position coach. I'm not so sure about Taggert, but I still think Crostobal would be a good guy to have on staff just for recruiting purposes. Plus, it'd be hard for them to do any worse than they did with Holtz.

FAU - We got Bowls!

If Cristobal can't find a job, I'd give him a job at FAU for the season just the perfect way to stick it to FIU

Looks like Butch Davis to FIU won't happen.
