    As of 12/12 –
    Graham & Brewster to Texas A&M
    Kelly – probably to Colorado State
    Sanders – announced during the season he won’t be back
    Trickett – speculation he will retire
    Dawsey – speculation he will be moved to an analyst job

    Haggins – will likely be retained
    Lawing – may be retained
    Miller – will probably not be retained

    In summary, Haggins, and maybe Lawing, are the only returning field coaches.

    Leavitt has been offered the DC job, and would probably coach LB’s. Leavitt was offered a new contract at Oregon yesterday, so he may not make it to FSU.

    Ron Dugans was reportedly offered the WR job, and was ready to accept, but has changed his mind and is staying at the U.

    Now that Graham and Brewster are gone, Willie can go ahead and get their replacements. That should help recruiting if Willie can find the right guys. FSU is pretty stocked at RB and TE, even with the loss of Saunders, and the potential loss of Patrick.

    Speculation –
    RB – Pimpleton or Lockette
    QB – Wienke, Craig, or other. I’d go with other right now.
    TE – ?? Maybe Sunseri?
    OL – Danny Hope
    WR – Dugans, Michael Johnson

    DL – Odell
    DE/OLB – Lawing or Woodie, with nod to Woodie
    LB – Leavitt
    DB – Buckley, ??

    If I’m a college coach and coach DB’s, I’m doing all I can to try to coach DB’s at FSU. FSU’s roster is loaded, and arguably a top 5 destination for a DB position coach.

    There are some rumors that Jim Mora Jr. may be a candidate for DC if Leavitt stays at Oregon.

    I can’t find anything about Garin Justice or Mora, so hard to corroborate what you’ve said about them. But for what it’s worth, Charles Strong dropped his commitment to FSU, which I sort of get. I don’t think Taggart’s offenses use that type of back much at all.

    Yeah, Lockette was just hired. He has a huge footprint in South Florida.

    I saw some mention of that, but didn’t get to read it much. Big connection to the Miami-Dade area!

    Lockette will be TE coach.

    That means Pimpleton will be RB coach.
    Leavitt will be LB coach and DC.
    Dugans will be WR coach / Co-OC.
    Woodie will be OLB/DE Coach.

    I don’t know about QB or OL.

    You say Leavitt “will be.” Do you mean:

    you have objective reason to be confident he’ll join Taggart;

    you believe, albeit with limited or no corroborated information, that he will; or

    are you saying only that that Leavitt “would be” the LB coach and DC should he decide to join Taggart in Tally?

    I have objective reason to be confident in all the predictions in my last post.

    Unless any of those are announced before Friday (last day of early signing period), I don’t expect any announcements until after FSU’s bowl game.

    You owe me a shot of bourbon if your predictions don’t pan out!
