Bob Stoops, who coached at Oklahoma from 1999 to 2016, and Memphis coach Mike Norvell have also been thrown into the mix as potential candidates.
Florida State fired Willie Taggart one day after the Seminoles were beaten by Miami and fell closer to missing a bowl game for the second consecutive season. Odell Haggins took over as interim coach and FSU has hired a firm to start an international search to fill the vacancy.
