Administrative staffer following Taggart to Florida Atlantic

Last week, it was announced that coaches Raymond Woodie and Stanford Samuels Jr would be joining Willie Taggart’s staff at Florida Atlantic. Another former Florida State staff member is expected to join them.

Assistant Director of Football Operations, Julie Reed, posted to Twitter on Thursday that she was excited to be an Owl.

This isn’t really a surprising move. Reed is a graduate of Western Kentucky, where she first met Taggart and she has been a member of his staff at every single one of his previous stops. She has worked with Taggart at WKU, South Florida, Oregon, FSU, and now FAU.

Reed was originally hired in January 2018 to assist the program with day-to-day operations where she worked closely with the assistant athletic director for football. She also is responsible for putting together the logistics of the Seminoles’ special events, such as recruiting camps and the spring game.

While her presence is one that’s felt off the field, Reed’s departure is another that the Florida State administration will have to fill moving forward.
