Florida State's Taggart completes staff with 5 additions

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State coach Willie Taggart has completed his coaching staff with the announcement of five new hires on Friday, including an offensive coordinator.

Walt Bell, who has been at Maryland the past two seasons, will be the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He held the same position with the Terrapins and also at Arkansas State in 2014 and 2015.

The other additions are Greg Frey (offensive line/run game coordinator), David Kelly (wide receivers/recruiting coordinator), Mark Snyder (defensive ends) and Alonzo Hampton (special teams).

Taggart, who was named the 11th head coach in school history on Dec. 6, retained only one coach from Jimbo Fisher’s staff — defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins. The rest of the staff is Harlon Barnett (defensive coordinator/secondary), Raymond Woodie (linebackers), Telly Lockette (tight ends) and Donte’ Pimpleton (running backs).

WATCH: Former Tennessee sprinter Christian Coleman breaks 20-year-old world record in 60 meters

On Friday, former Tennessee sprinter Christian Coleman broke a 20-year-old world record in the 60 meters in 6.37 seconds. He broke Maurice Greene’s record of 6.39 in 1998. Coleman was just a toddler when Greene set the record.

Earlier in the day at Clemson, Coleman won his heat in 6.47. Coleman made headlines in 2017 after finishing one place ahead of Usain Bolt in the 100m at the IAAF World Championships in London.

While at Tennessee, Coleman had an incredible junior season. He was the NCAA Outdoor Champion 100m and 200m, along with being the Indoor Champion in the 60m and 200m. He turned pro in June of 2017 with a seven-figure endorsement deal with Nike.

Coleman shared the video via his Twitter account:
