Among the potential candidates: former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck and UCF coach Josh Heupel. "We looked at it pretty thoroughly", explained Coburn.

On Florida State's end, it makes sense to give this a look. We could never know it.

The question for who will replace Taggart remains unknown but Kearney hopes things turn around for the Seminoles, "I hope to get the best out there and if we have to invest lets put the money that's needed to do that".

Coburn estimates it will cost Florida State about $18 million to buyout Taggart, although the details have not been finalized. He will be receiving monthly payments until the remaining term of the contract.

Taggart becomes the first head football coach to be fired since Darrell Mudra in 1975.

When Florida State leadership announced its decision to fire Willie Taggart on Sunday, university president John Thrasher stated that he and athletic director David Coburn had "no choice but to make a change".

This weekend Florida State is now 0 and 5 in two years to their rivals. Taggart had a 9-11 record in his second season.

With keeping Briles on as offensive coordinator, it could turn into a head coach in waiting role. Along with losing games, Taggart lost the Seminoles, a number of high-profile recruits.

It's time to give up on the idea that Jackson is a fraud or that a defense is going to solve him and that'll be it for him. Then there's the whole set of problems that contributed to the Bengals failing to get a win with Dalton at quarterback.

After that game, the Noles were known for losing fourth quarter leads after displaying the same performance in their games against Virginia and Wake Forest.

He'll once again be tasked with trying to get the Seminoles (4-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) back to a bowl after a one-year absence.

However in regards to the future, Miller says Haggins can help support the team throughout the rest of the season, "Odell is a true blue Seminole and he is special to anyone that wears the Garnet and Gold and I have no doubt that Odell will do a great job for us the rest of the season".

"We're looking for somebody that can win national championships", Coburn said.

"I don't have an explicit set up criteria other than that".

"We are Florida State University", Haggins, who played for and later coached under the legendary Bobby Bowden, said.

Coburn was asked about not giving Taggart enough time and said he thought progress was being made at the outset of the season.

Nyqwan Murray and Da'Vante Phillips of the Florida State Seminoles react after an FSU touchdown during the first half of the game against the Florida Gators at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on November 25, 2017 in Gainesville, Florida. Their season will conclude with the annual rivalry game against Florida which will be hosted by the Gators. They will be traveling to Boston College first and will later host Alabama State for their last home game.
