DG on FSU’s Willie Taggart: “There is a PR aspect to being the head coach; on a topic like this, it is best to be left alone”

Following a 5-7 record in his debut season at Florida State, second-year head coach Willie Taggart entered the 2019 season with some heat on his seat. It wasn’t just the losing record and a missed bowl game, though; Florida State struggled offensively behind a line that could never protect its quarterback or create enough running lanes.

On Saturday, things appeared to be on the up, though. Florida State held a 24-6 lead at one point over Boise State; however, the Seminoles collapsed in the second half, losing to the Broncos, 36-31.

During his weekly radio show on Monday, Taggart spoke about the loss, though one of his comments went viral after the fact. Essentially, Taggart claimed that dehydration could’ve played a big role in his team’s loss to Boise State.

David Glenn explains why Taggart is in a tough situation with Florida State fans, but also why statements like what he said after the fact — through the media — are increasingly problematic, too.
