While much of the college football world paid attention to who would make the sixth edition of the playoff system, the FSU football family kept their eyes squarely on Tallahassee - as Mike Norvell was announced as the 11th full time head coach of the Seminoles and the third person to hold that title in a period of just over two calendar years.
Veatch said Sunday during a 75-minute news conference that Memphis will move quickly to replace Norvell.
Florida State fired coach Willie Taggart after a 9-12 (6-9 ACC) record in less than two seasons at the helm for the 'Noles. The Seminoles, who won the 2013 national title, finished the season becoming bowl eligible at 6-6 under interim coach Odell Haggins.
Norvell will get a chance to get his first win as coach of the Seminoles this September, with FSU football scheduled to open the 2020 season on September 5th against West Virginia in Atlanta.

"I'm so very excited for the future and the opportunity to return Florida State football to one of the nation's elite". "It's not about me".

Memphis placed a player on the AP All-America first team after both the 2017 (receiver Anthony Miller) and 2018 (Darrell Henderson) seasons.
