Add Willie Taggart to the expansive list of Bulls on a national watch list.

The fourth-year USF coach, who has his club bowl-bound for the second consecutive year, is among 23 coaches on the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award watch list.

The award, sponsored by the American Heart Association, is the only college coaching honor presented after the conclusion of all bowl games. It's voted on by the National Sports Media Association.

Two other American Athletic Conference coaches -- Houston's Tom Herman and Navy's Ken Niumatalolo -- also are on the list.

Taggart, 13-3 in his last 16 games, has the Bulls riding a program-record seven-game conference win streak entering Friday's contest against Temple in Philadelphia. USF ranks eighth nationally in scoring (44.8 ypg) and rushing offense (268.4 ypg).
