FAU's Coach Taggart Hosts Teleconference



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.

Coach Taggart says that the coaches normally meet with academic advisors once a week. Now, the coaches are meeting with the advisors twice a week via Zoom. This way the coaches can better know how the players could need help with their studies.

LOVE THAT!

The one bits of good news for Owl fans is the recruiting sites are pretty much assuming that local kids are much more prone to remain in state closer to home with recruiting trips cancelled. It DOES give our Coaches a better shot at the Florida recruits at least! We hope!!!!!
