Taggart sent a tweet that suggests he'll be recruiting players to Oregon for 2018.
Amid speculation linking Willie Taggart to the vacant Florida State job, the Oregon coach sent a tweet that suggested he'll return to the Ducks in 2018.
Oregon went 7-5 this season, Taggart's first at the helm of the program. He came to Eugene after four years as head coach at South Florida, where he went 24-25 but 10-1 in 2016.
The Florida State job opened up when Jimbo Fisher signed a record 10-year, $75 million deal to become the next head coach at Texas A&M, which fired Kevin Sumlin after the Aggies went 7-5 this season. Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons.
Taggart and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are rumored to be Florida State's first choices to replace Fisher.
Oregon reportedly offered Taggart a contract extension amid the Florida State rumor.
