FAU Football Coach Willie Taggart Spring Teleconference - April 6, 2020
FAU hosted a teleconference with Head Coach Willie Taggart and members of the media on the morning of April 6th, 2020.
The main discussion revolved around the football program's response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and how the coaches and players have adapted to working remotely.
Spring football has been cancelled, but that has not stopped the coaches from working with their athletes and recruiting potential new Owls.
Below are some of the key points from Coach Taggart's teleconference.
