Florida State v Mississippi

Florida State v Mississippi

Former FSU head coach Willie Taggart landed a job at FAU Wednesday, and his resulting contract with the school offers Florida State relief in the buyout of Taggart's contract.

Per Steve Berkowitz of USA Today, Taggart signed a five year deal at $750,000, plus a $25,000 annual retention payment. The $775,000 over five years would put the buyout figure at under $14 million for the Seminoles, as opposed to the original projection of about $18 million.
