Maybe you're not as behind, but that was a person-head comment. :-)
Anyway, all indications here in Tampa are that this guy is an outstanding decision. Taggart is a former assistant to Jim Harbaugh when he was at Stanford. He was personally recommended by Harbaugh. Tony Dungy not only recommended him by reaching out to the athletic dept, but actually attended the announcement & press conference. During an ESPN panel segment yesterday on the numerous coaching changes in NCAAF, Taggart was described as the "best move of the whole bunch."
Of course, the proof is in the Ws and Ls, but all signs point to this being a GREAT move.
