The college football world is abuzz this morning over the news of Willie Taggart accepting the head coaching job at Oregon, including his current batch of players at USF.

247’s Josh Newberg tweeted out at around 8:30 that Taggart called a team meeting to inform his players of the decision, but most had found out the news before then. Here’s some of their reactions:

Devin Abraham

Nate Godwin

Kofi Amichia

Tyre McCants

Jimmy Bayes

Nate Ferguson

Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Billy Atterbury

Brett Kean

Bruce Hector

Bruce Judson, USF’s Four-Star Class of ‘17 QB Commit

Plies (the tailgate liar)

Overall the players seem to be taking it in stride. Fortunately we don’t have a mess on our hands where Taggart said X, Y, and Z in public about staying and Finishing What He Started. Everyone knew this was a possibility, so it’s not too surprising that it came to pass.

More to come later. We’ll add to this post as more tweets come in.
