Willie Hot seat

How much is left on Taggartís contract? FAU probably canít spare the money to fire him and payoff the balance. I personally donít know.†
Are there any rumors coming from players discontent with the current coach situation or other complaints from the team that could be causing poor performance?†

FAU - THE REAL SLEEPING GIANT

FAU is not flush with cash and is a state university.
They can not afford to spend money on a buyout.
Alumni often help in the buyouts, and that will not happen here!
Willie will be here for a while.

As for the players, they all like Willie as a coach. Not sure about all of the position coaches.
Band of Brothers may not be all that is it said to be.

Personally, I would have liked to see some players rotated in when things were not going well at the start of the 4th quarter. That certainly would have given the starters plenty of time to show if they had it or not.
Tronti QB, Wright WR, Posey WR, Dean RB, Boselli OL and Evanís TE to name a few.

Now that our standards have been elevated we all expect more.

I still think 6-6 gets us the Bahamas Bowl as CUSA only has 5 bowl eligible teams with like 7-8 slots to fill†but last night was the most winnable game on the schedule. We play WKU well traditionally especially in Bowling Green. I think the last time we lost there was 2015. Hopefully some changes are made in the lineup and we get more experienced guys in there for and heavens sake target the TEs more. They were arguably our most productive offensive unit earlier this year and we just stopped going to them. I donít understand that. Middle is getting hot at the right time I donít think that game is as winnable as we thought earlier in the year. Weíre in for †two dog fights to get to a bowl which at this point in our programís history is the bare minimum. Taggart still needs to go though he sucks

I believe the buyout drops from 3M to 1M next December 1st. A sizable enough jump that weíll probably give him another year

We're poor. Unless WT resigns he's not going anywhere and we can't afford a buyout. However we are saving a good bit of money on his salary. I think his contract is worth $500K. We need to "redistribute" the wealth and get a quality OC/DC. That way WT can sit back and pretend he knows what he's doing and we can get back to winning games.

Yea I agree unfortunately. Heíll get one more year no matter what the next two days will just determine how long the leash is†

I thought the AAC was taking us largely because we are a big market and would commit more to athletics and facilities?

Well teams trying to compete don't keep crappy coaches around because they can't afford to fire them.  Especially since his hire was already for lesser money since FSU is paying him so much to go away …

Willie Taggart is ruining our program.  The standard has to be higher.   We shouldn't be hoping to have winning seasons once every three years like we have in the last 15 seasons … (I think it's 5 winning seasons in 15 years )

We should be competing more and elevating ourselves.   

6-6 and a crappy bowl slot shouldn't be a good season for us.   That should be the bottom

I agree 100%. I think we as fans and alumni have seen enough. However, I think the calculus is different internally be it finances or whatever the case may be. Willie deserves to be relived at the end of this month but my point is, I think he gets one more year with a very short leash. We shouldnít have dropped off this bad after Lane left

Found this interesting nugget as written by our own, Jake Elman. Jake can you elaborate?

ďTAGGART owes FAU $3 million if he leaves the school or is fired before Dec. 1, 2022. The buyout drops to $1 million if he leaves before Dec. 1, 2023 and $500,000 between Dec. 2, 2023-Dec. 31, 2024.ď
Sounds like this idiot might owe us $3 mil if we fire him. If thatís the case, why wait an extra second? Can him and bring in Ken Briles†

That has to be wrong right ?  I thought that he would owe if he leaves on his own.  I was thinking the buyout drops 3 to 1 million if we wait until after next year

If the idiot signed that where he owes us because he's fired, then yeah fire him now.  Seems too good to be true
