The Florida State administration has had nothing but good things to say about new coach Willie Taggart. The admiration went to a whole new level Thursday, though, when Seminoles athletic director Stan Wilcox said he “loves” Taggart.

“He’s a great individual and great personality,” Wilcox said on Sirius XM ACC radio. “He’s easy to work with. I love him. And don’t under estimate his mild manner. He’s a competitor at heart.

“The thing I also love about Willie, it his dream job. He comes to work every day, and he’s on Cloud 9. He can’t believe he’s at Florida State.”

Wilcox is hardly the only one around the Florida State program that sees the enthusiasm that Taggart has brought to the football team even before playing one game. The father of Seminoles linebacker Josh Brown, Frederick, tweeted Wednesday that “football is fun again” in Tallahassee.
