No active coach will interview until the end of the year. So we'll hear a lot of names for the next month.This is not a top 5 program overall but I would say top 12-15, especially since the mid 80's forward. I am sure we are going to hear names such as Urban Meyer and Big Game Bob mentioned but these two are not coming to Tallahassee. Taggert did a good job with the rebuild at Western Ky. and South Florida. He did an ok job in his one year at Oregeon. He has been a huge disappointment to the FSU fan base since his arrival.
Just thinking about some names that I would have on my short list if I was the man in charge:
Jeff Scott co OC @ Clemson, if I am not mistaken, dad Brad, had a long stint at FSU.
Jeff Brohm HC @ Purdue
Mark Stoops HC @ UK what this guy has done in this state is remarkable.
Matt Campbell HC @ Iowa St. see above about Stoops.
Looking outside Power 5, I would consider hard, Mike Norvell, at Memphis and at least talk to Lane Kiffin at Florida Atlantic.
I am sure there are others that will come to mind over the next day or so. The problem at FSU is they expect to win 10 games a year and the talent is just not on campus for that to happen, especially at QB and OL.
Jacob Coker.Landon Dickerson?
It's my opinion you're giving Franchione credit that belongs to Coach Moore. The only thing Franchione asked for when he was there was new carpet and ol' Finus put the nix on that quickly. The Crimson Tradition Fund Campaign for Athletics did start in 2002, yes. This is at the same time where Franchione was balking over his contract and refused to sign.@TerryP , as much disdain that we all have for Fran. One thing he did do, was get the initiative started to build and revamp our facilities and make our recruiting a lot easier. Saban took that and amplified it exponentially, but I firmly believe that our new facilities from the Fran/Shula era, made it an easier decision for Saban when Mal came calling. (One less thing to worry about)
