Florida State head coach Willie Taggart, right, disagrees with the referee in the first half of an NCAA college football game against Miami in Tallahassee, Fla., Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019. "We had no choice but to make a change," Florida State President John Thrasher said Sunday in a news release. The school said longtime Florida State assistant Odell Haggins has been asked to take over as interim coach for the remaining three games. "We still have a lot of faith," Florida State linebacker Emmett Rice said Saturday. "I spoke to Coach Taggart this afternoon to let him know of our decision," Florida State athletic director David Coburn said Sunday.
