Bob Stoops not a candidate for Florida State job

Bob Stoops makes comments after being introduced as the new head coach and general manager of the XFL Dallas football team during a news conference in Arlington Texas Thursday Feb. 7 2019

Having fired Willie Taggart on Sunday, Florida State is in the midst of searching for its new head coach, but that certainly won't be the only change made to the FSU staff.

Taggart's buyout is expected to cost $18 million.

ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit also spoke with Stoops, and Stoops told him he has not spoken to anyone at Florida State and is "not a candidate". "It was very important to us that the student-athletes know right away". The Seminoles' final game of the season is against the University of Florida on November 30th.

Coburn says it's something that took a lot of thought before making the costly decision. "We will support our student-athletes in every way and do all we can to return to the winning tradition that is Seminole football".


I don't doubt he'd be solid whether it be here, Florida State or pretty much at any other major program but at this point, save the national championship he won now 20 seasons ago, isn't he the same exact guy Brian Kelly is?

At the time, Stoops said that he felt that he had fulfilled his objective as OU's head football coach, becoming the winningest football coach in Oklahoma history with a 190-48 record. The intensity picked up even more this season with the Seminoles again enduring a season well below past standards. Haggins went undefeated in 2017 after Jimbo Fisher left the team before the end of the season.

"I hate it for the program, himself, the kids and everybody involved", Fisher said.
