    He’s a good coach but I think it was an underwhelming hire for a school like FSU.

    Certainly how I felt during the process. I did have Norvell near the top of the 2nd Tier candidates.

    It seemed the main possibilities were
    - Brian Kelly & James Franklin
    - Campbell from Iowa St and Fleck from Minnesota

    Fleck had massive buyout before the process and Campbell used the process to sign an extension with Cyclones. He is likely too exotic for the South and rather wait a couple years for Notre Dame/Michigan to open up

    I can't say if Kelly/Franklin were legit available. But I don't think FSU can currently afford them while also paying off Taggart.

    Based on what I have read from recruits, Norvell has been a major upgrade over Taggart. Specific plan, attention to detail and commitment to win now. His DC hire seems just okay. Everything else so far I have loved.
