What's it like to be a TE for Taggart? 'It's a blast'



We touched on this a bit last week in sharing Mike McFarland's "I get chills" excitement about being a tight end in a Willie Taggart offense at USF. Then Sean Price told us that he thanks God "every morning" for bringing him a coach like Taggart.

The Titans were nice enough to get us on the phone with Jack Doyle, the undrafted rookie who led Taggart's Western Kentucky teams in receptions each of the last two years, and he had much the same excitement, remembering when he first learned Taggart would be taking over at WKU.
