    Taggart is New Football Coach at Oregon

    Introductory press conferences aren’t usually necessary after Oregon hires a football coach.

    Duck fans were already quite familiar with Mike Bellotti, Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich when they were promoted from offensive coordinator to CEO of the program.

    Willie Taggart, the now former South Florida coach and an unofficial member of the Harbaugh family, tried to make a good first impression during his debut appearance as a man of Oregon on Thursday at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex.

    “I know many of you probably want to know, who is this Willie Taggart guy?” Taggart said

    I had a gut feeling that Helfrish was gone. No way a high power program like Oregon takes a chance on another 4-8 record. That stat has not been seen since the 90’s. He not Chip Kelly, but anyone was produces a Natty or upper tier bowl game is a winner in my book.

    1. He did a good job turning around USF after the Chip Holtz disaster.

    I wish he’d stuck around and finished the job.
