FSU football: Kendal Briles thinks FSU is a top 10 job in country

FSU football offensive coordinator Kendal Briles spoke with media Tuesday and gave his thoughts on a variety of things, including being head coach at FSU.

FSU football offensive coordinator Kendal Briles made an appearance with media Tuesday. He answered questions about the leadership of Odell Haggins, James Blackman, Jordan Travis, team injuries and a variety of other things.

The FSU offense has looked better in recent weeks, but that’s mainly due to playing two of the worst defenses in the nation in back-to-back weeks.

Injuries are mounting up too as Cam Akers has sat out the Alabama State game but should be available for Florida next week.

Briles spoke about the lack of depth at wide receiver and said he’s never seen anything like it. The full interview is below:

Thoughts

There are lots of interesting things in this interview but the most interesting was how Briles feels about Odell Haggins telling him to do what he feels is best and his interest in the head coaching job.

I wonder just how much Willie Taggart was involved with the offense before being fired? The only difference I see is the inclusion of Jordan Travis at quarterback for the most part. A valid question is why wasn’t he involved in the offense BEFORE Willie Taggart was fired?

I still feel Taggart botched the quarterback situation last season with starting Deondre Francois the entire season, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was his call to keep Travis on the sidelines too.

The other thing is Briles’ comment on his interest in being the head coach at FSU football. The look on his face was priceless and he made no bones about being interested while stating he felt it was “a top 10 job in the country.”

Fans have surmised Briles could be a head coach in waiting under certain circumstances. I don’t think that will happen, but it’s interesting to see he would be very interested in the job and what could happen in the next few years depending on what happens with this coaching search.
