The Willie Taggart era in Oregon was short-lived but his exit had a lasting effect on the Ducks.
Although the pull of going back home to the state of Florida coaching the Seminoles was too strong, some of the Oregon players took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the way Taggart handled himself in the time leading up to his departure from Oregon. According to some, the former Ducks head coach was not completely honest with his intent.
He lied straight to my dads face in my living room Thursday night. He didn't keep his word to me Monday. Lost all my respect. https://t.co/JIcv7j6YG7— Troy Dye (@Tdye15dbTroy) December 6, 2017
Well that's one way to send a coach out.
