Taggart has been the name most associated with the FSU job.

Is Willie Taggart heading back to his Florida roots and taking over the program at FSU?

If he is, he's not saying it at all. In fact, he seemed to deny it today.

Asked this afternoon about the rumors surrounding him deciding between staying at Oregon and bolting for Florida State, Taggart said there is "no decision to be made."

Taggart's Twitter activity has been centered around the Ducks, but as CBS Sports' Barrett Sallee pointed out, he has tweeted about his current program in the past and taken a new job shortly thereafter.

If Taggart spurns FSU and stays with Oregon, he reportedly could be in line for a huge new contract.
