Oregon has hired South Florida head coach Willie Taggart to the same position, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

Yesterday it was reported by CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd that if the USF job were to open, Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin would be a “top choice” to take it.

For Florida fans, this news has to come to a relief after a full week of rumors that tied coach Jim McElwain to the Ducks.
