Jimbo Fisher’s departure an early Christmas present for Dan Mullen

Florida State hiring Willie Taggart was excellent news for new Florida coach Dan Mullen. Why? Because it means Jimbo Fisher is gone. Taggart, 41, might become a star. I believe he will, despite a 47-50 career coaching record. Still, Mullen’s first week on the job in Gainesville was marked by tremendous fortune with the news
