Maybe he was just stating a fact. A sad fact at that.
You think your boyfriend Kevin Wallace could do better after dealing with a whacked WKU admin and alumni?
Going to get interesting.

Taggart will get 5 year, 1.15 million per year contract, and an additional 500k if USF wins BCS title. That's what I'm reading online..

How many of you haters would not have accepted that gig? WKU will need to up their pay if they want to keep a good coach.

No one would turn that down. It doesn't make him a good coach though.

boosters raised 800-900k bonus to keep him and he still bounced.. I say I unretire his number.. The punk way he left those kids after they played their butts off for him is disgraceful and he should not be celebrated!!

What he did for those kids is get them to their 1st bowl game. If any of those kids fell like you(and im sure they dont) shame on them. It shows he didnt do it for the money, he wanted to move closer to his hometown and family. We need more men in or society like Taggart of put family first. He is a good man and a great role model to his boys.

I agree, I wonder why he didn't even consider UK, I know Calapari is the big money maker up there, but I'm thinking that joker was making about 3 million a year, that'd be more than his 1.15 down in SF if its truly all about the money
