The Willie Taggart era is over at Florida State before his second season even ended.
Taggart was fired as Florida State's head football coach on Sunday, a day after a 27-10 home loss to Miami, the school announced in a release.
Taggart was 9-12 in his brief tenure for the Seminoles after being hired from Oregon to replace Jimbo Fisher.
Odell Haggins will serve as interim coach.
Florida State athletic director David Coburn said a national search will begin immediately to find Taggart's replacement.
Taggart responded to the firing on Twitter.
"Obviously, I am disappointed in the decision today as I believe our future is bright at Florida State," Taggart said. "Building a program and a culture takes time, and I regret that we will not have the opportunity to continue to coach these incredible young men."
