On Sunday afternoon, the University of Florida released a statement relieving Willie Tagart of his coaching duties less than two years after his administration. Odel Huggins has been named interim head coach, effective for the second time in his career as Florida State prepares to move to Boston College.
Shortly after the news broke, Willie Tagart took to Twitter to post a short statement. Former, current and high school freshmen / targets have expressed their thoughts on social media and the reactions are vastly different.

Deion Sanders had some thoughts:
– Deion Sanders (@DeionSanders) November 3, 2019  I'm looking at the big picture U look now. Now what is your plan and how much time do you give it to work? What if your son went to FSU to play and blush and play moderately his second season. Do you have to give it up? I have time. https://t.co/X4LPiJEQCU photos19459003: 11 – Deion Sanders (@DeionSanders) November 4, 2019

We will continue to update this article as reactions to Tagart's shooting occur. Obviously with coaching changes and program insecurity, high school players will give up their commitments and see some of the consequences of Tagart's firing.
