Biggs: Taggart to be hired at Western Kentucky

Willie Taggart will be named as the new head coach at Western Kentucky later today, a source told the National Football Post.

A former standout quarterback for the Hilltoppers, Taggart is currently the running backs coach at Stanford. He also coached at Western Kentucky previously.

He will replace Dave Elson, who was fired two weeks ago. Western Kentucky is 0-10 and has the nation’s longest losing streak at 18 games.

Chicago Bears wide receivers coach Darryl Drake talked to the school about the job. He also was a player and coach there before.
