For the first time in over four decades, FSU football is actually in the market for a football coach after Jimbo Fisher chose to abandon ship for a big payday at a middle of the road SEC program, Texas A&M.
Taggart was reportedly en route to Tallahassee on Monday to meet with FSU officials, and an announcement could come soon thereafter.
Prior to becoming head coach at OR in 2016, Taggart, 41, was head coach at the University of South Florida.
When asked by reporters Sunday if he would be the Ducks' coach in the bowl game, Taggart said: "Why wouldn't I be?".

OR officials were said to be expecting a decision on Taggart's future early this week.
Taggart has a 47-50 overall record during his eight-year coaching career, but he has led Western Kentucky, USF and OR to winning records during his tenures.
