Polarizing reactions to Willie Taggart's "dream job" dismissal

Bri Amaranthus

Willie Taggart coached 21 games at Florida State before he was dismissed as head coach on Sunday. The "Do Something" slogan creator left the Oregon football program after the 2017 season to take his Florida State dream job, which left many Duck fans feeling slighted. The Ducks promoted Mario Cristobal to head coach and in his second season are ranked No. 7, with a 8-1 overall record and undefeated in Pac-12 Conference play.

Taggart's buyout from FSU is the second largest buyout in college football history, at approximately $17 million. Charlie Weis was paid $18.9 million to leave Notre Dame. Although, the Seminoles will end up paying three buyouts that total $20 million, which include paying out the contracts with Oregon and South Florida.

Those are the facts, now these are the reactions.
