Taggart selects new defensive coordinator

The post-game interview after Florida State defeated Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl.

Michigan State co-defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett will reportedly be named Florida State's new defensive coordinator, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports. Barnett is highly thought of by the players there and by his staff.

The Spartans allowed opponents to complete 56.7 percent of their passes and allowed just 6.2 yards per passing attempt. He joins the Seminoles after 11 seasons at his alma mater, Michigan State. He has produced six defensive back draft picks in that span with two first round picks. In total, Jimbo Fisher's assistant coaches made $4,691,000, while Michigan State's made a total of $3,529,120.

A player at Michigan State who went on to play in the National Football League from 1990-96, Barnett served as the defensive backs coach at the University of Cincinnati for three seasons.

Eventually, Lester parked his truck in the middle of the road until sirens were heard in the background a short time later.

Barnett has worked for Dantionio since the 2007 season.

All the familiarity with the current staff, program and the area makes too much sense and Campbell, a former All-American corner, would be a nice, young fit for the staff. Dantonio should be looking for a younger guy to fill the defensive backs coach void and Campbell would be an ideal fit. Barnett coached defensive backs throughout his tenure and was the co-defensive co-ordinator the past three seasons.

The news of Barnett's hiring gets Taggart one step closer to filling out his staff.

FSU has also hired tight ends coach Telly Lockette, offensive line coach Greg Frey, and running backs coach Donte' Pimpleton on the offensive side of the ball.
